Monday 4th November 2013
After being unhappy with the photos I took with the ESO 6D on Friday I decided that I should have another go. Yesterday I had sorted out the WiFi function on the camera, so that I can tether it to both my iPad and my Samsumg Galaxy phone. The latter is the most convenient as it means I can use the phone as a remote when the camera is mounted on a tripod. So first thing I had a little play, just to make sure it all still worked. I also took the opportunity to take a couple of close up shots of Jez, who was lying on the sofa in the sun. I particularly like this one of her front paw.
Despite the sun, Jez decided she would come out for a walk with Max and I, mainly, I think, as Monday is ‘bin day’ and she gets all excited for some reason when Chris puts the rubbish out. As I was playing with it, and the sun was shining, I took the 6D rather than the PowerShot with me.
First off, here’s Max, standing waiting for me & Jez just after we’ve crossed over the Roman Road.
It was a beautiful morning, and the lower heath looked stunning in the autumn sunlight.
There is also a real autumnal feel about the bracken.
There has been a lot of rain, though, so in the more boggy areas the ponds are full to overflowing again.
Here’s another of my photos taken in the little birch copse. I just love the contrast of the low sunlight through the trees and the green of the leaves, with the very dark shadows. Jez is standing on the path in the middle of this shot.
And here’s another photo of Jez and Max at the little bridge.
I love the shadow of the handrail and the reflection in the large puddle.
Just after taking that photo I realised that a large group of walkers was coming along behind us. Jez noticed them too.
And lastly, another ‘sunlight through the leaves’ photo: this one taken along the Roman Road looking towards Longmeadow Lane.
We’ve been really lucky again this year to have such lovely sunny and warm days all the way into November. Lets hope it lasts.
