#OneRiver: Kegworth St Andrews
Like many people I suspect I'm fed up with this flat grey which has sat on the Midlands for days, so this one won't make the cut. Call it a composition exercise. Kegworth St Andrews | OneRiver . Sony ILCE-6000 E PZ 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OSS f9 40mm 1/125 ISO 100

#OneRiver: Ratcliffe-on-Soar
No text with this one because it's just a placeholder which I don't expect to make it into the final portfolio. I like the image Ratcliffe-on-Soar looming up through the gloom but I'm going to have to go back and shoot this again in better light. Sony ILCE-...

This was really an exercise in using my old Tamron 500mm mirror lens on the Sony a6000. The light was pretty poor so I was very pleased with this, although the proportion of keepers from this setup is quite low. Sony ILCE-6000 Tamron 500mm, Fotodiox Pro f8 ...

#OneRiver: Upperton Bridge
Another day, another substandard image. But today I have a different excuse - the natives were restless. With a Coritani war party bearing down on me I elected to snap and run. Sigh. Sony ILCE-6000 E PZ 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OSS f4 19mm 1s ISO 3200 Upperton Brid...

Amber Jelly
A new species for me but the translucent appearance and the fact that they were growing on Willow suggests these are not the more common Jelly Ears (which prefer Elder). Amber Jelly, Exidia recisa . Nikon D7200 100mm f/2.8 f11 1/160 ISO 1800
