17/52: Ripples on Flickr.
Taken between Windermere and Ambleside on Lake Winderemere in the Lake District, UK with my Canon 6D and 17-40mm f4L.
It took getting up at 5.30am to get this shot before the sky became more overcast. I love the light on the hills opposite too.
My first real attempt at a long exposure photograph shows that I really need a darker ND filter. But I love the effect of slowing down the shutter speed. The filter I bought was really so I could shoot wide-open at f/1.4 in daylight with my X-Pro 1 and 35mm lens, but if you stop down to f/16, you can achieve this look. I had to do quite a bit of work in Lightroom to darken things down a bit and you can see that some of the detail in the water has been lost, but for a first attempt, I’m quite pleased with it.
Dit dah, dit dah. Flashy lighty with HMS Puncher and Explorer onboard HMS Smiter. (at The Solent)

I ordered a mini tabletop photo studio with a couple of lights. Any advice on best positioning of the lights?
St. Peter’s Square in 2005 and 2013. What a difference 8 years makes.
I spy a RAZR. This is amazing.
While it makes for a beautiful picture, I think it’s a little sad that we now live our lives through a small, glowing LCD, rather than just enjoying the moment. I’m as guilty of it as anyone, just not with an iPad for a camera.

10/52: In the mist on Flickr.
I was driving through the forest just north of Henley on Thames when I spotted a little side road and couldn’t resist stopping to take a few photos of the trees through the mist
