It’s a tad more than balmy…

But the chalk streams are still flowing from the deluge that we had a couple of weeks ago and looked so inviting I nearly dipped my feet.

DSC_5928.jpgIt’s good to see a stream looking so fresh and vibrant during our “heatwave”  and I’m sure, knowing the British weather and it being Glastonbury this weekend the stream will be replenished very shortly.

Shot’s take on the River Ebble, just outside Broad Chalke in Wiltshire.

Inspiration…

When it’s not there it’s a bit of a bugger but that’s the great thing with having a quite extensive back catalogue, you can go back to the great moments and give them a bit of a tweak and it makes you yearn to get back out there…

DSC_7705.jpgI need to rediscover myself and a second from the new years day sunset in Tresaith is pushing me in the right direction… ;o)

Gnats!

AKA If You Knuckles Aren’t Wet You’re Not Doing It Right!DSC_2560I love my camera but sometimes you just need to get low and when that’s above a fast flowing stream it tends to focus the mind…

I was in a river twice today so I’ll admit, I love my wellies too!

….is it a typo if the letters silent?…

Breaking The Rules

Shooting wildlife with a 35mm prime… Who the hell does he think he is?…

Kinda works though and it’s sooo much sharper than my 18-105mm kit lens.

These guys were very much into each other and so much more elegant than the duck thugs rampaging up the other end of the lake! I must remember to take my 300mm next time, nowhere near as fast as the prime lens but, with the right settings, I might be able to catch them displaying and dancing.

Shot on Fonthill Lake, near Tisbury, Wiltshire. I’ll be back there tomorrow.

Be Like Liquid

Strange times… I’m enjoying the fact that I’m not having to chase a shot for the day and actually enjoying seeing more and not constantly thinking I must get my camera. I know that means there’s going to be times when I miss a shot but sometimes you need to see things rather than look at things through the viewfinder.

I also have the chance to meander back through the 50,000 or so shots I got last year and maybe tweak one or two, strange though, that many shots and I can remember every single day, where it was and how I was feeling, for someone who had a job to remember last week that’s quite a mind funk!

Where Nant Howni Meets The Seadsc_6426Just a simple picture but a complex switch, like old music, or a long forgotten smell that clicks in an instant.

They promise -6 tonight and there’s a great spot on my way in to work in the morning, best leave early then! ;o)
