It's too foggy for photos!


It can be a bit difficult to get excited on a foggy dull day when the colours are washed out and there's little contrast. On the other hand it's a great opportunity to take some atmospheric shots through the veil of misty air. Here are some shots I took yesterday 1st Nov 2015.
I love the texture of these pine tree trunks melting away into the fog.

The golden ferns against the gloomy woods makes a great contrast.

Another wall of trees. Several of them seem to pick up the light and stand out as though they were in the sun but there wasn't any sunshine!

It's a great opportunity for some minimal silhouettes
 I went out a bit later as well at dusk and took these


I think this one captures the moment really well. It's so soft and muted but still has depth to it

I pushed this one in Lightroom to bring out the yellow leaves and try to create a contrast against the trees in the background. It's amazing what can be done as this is not what it looked like but it makes a great a nice shot!
I hope you enjoy these. Let me know what you think in the comments.

Bending Trees

I created a image called growing towards the light. See it here  using freehand movement of the camera. I wanted to revisit this concept with my new Sony A7mkii which I've now had for several months. This time, however, I wanted to use a tripod and 2 heads to give me more consistent movement. This image below is one of the results of that shoot. I had to adjust the various angles of the set up to give me the picture I wanted and this is one of the ones I really like. More thoughts on the Sony A7mkii another time. I'd love to hear your comments. Simon

Made Mystic with Motion

From my bedroom window I can see over the small valley that is Lower Bourne in Surrey UK and yesterday there was a beautiful sunset. It was lovely as a village scene in Surrey but by moving the camera during this 2 second exposure it has given me this wonderful mystic scene reminiscent of some far flung mountains. I moved the camera down and at the same time from side to side forming the swirling shapes from the tree line. I enhanced the colours in post processing to bring out the warmth of the scene.

Gold Leaf

I've just put a new picture called "Gold Leaf" in my Motion Emotion gallery. It's a piece that I created using camera movement and flash to give both blurred and sharp parts to the picture. The leaves have a great sheen to them and seem to nestle in the gold mist created by the movement. Go to the gallery here
