Greenwing
After the battering that "Spring" thew at them the Greenwings are now up, just - they're still clinging to the turf unconvinced it's not going to snow again - so I thought I'd try something a little different from my usual approach, a 4 shot HDR. I'm not su...

Horse With No Name
Deep in the Rutland agri-desert. After nine days I let the horse run free 'Cause the desert had turned to sea There were plants and birds and rocks and things There was sand and hills and rings The ocean is a desert with it's life underground And a perfect ...

Yellow streak a mile wide
What a great shot. Just one more, the path rises over here I'll get a better angle on the rape. Just a few more. And then we ran. And we almost made it back to the car before the hail hit us. Almost.

TwelveTrees: April: Down To The Wire
I really thought that by April my TwelveTrees project would be getting easier. In fact, the opposite has been true, April has been the toughest month so far. For a start, it has been a very busy month for me with little time for photography, and when I have...

Grunge
5 stop HDR of our plum blossom in Photomatix. Ok if you like that sort of thing I suppose. I prefer a more natural look like the damson blossom below (restrained use of Nik HDR Efex Pro), but for the above shot I used the Photomatix Grunge setting. Overall ...

April Showers
Another unsuccessful attempt at an HDR landscape which could only be rescued by converting it into this rather mushy black and white. Nikon D7200 Tamron 17-50mm f8 17mm ISO 100, 3 shot HDR
