Ominous Clouds

December 28th, 2011

Awesome sunset tonight in Hastings near my parents house. This is the local reservoir.

I followed Blodgett’s previous advice of using the spot metering mode and I also used the exposure compensation to make it a bit brighter. I’ve put loads more here but they’re mostly duplicates.

Winter Trees

A forest missing its leaves somewhere near Marlow last week:

One advantage to having the trees in this state is that it’s much easier to see where you’re going when adventuring out in the wilderness…

Frosty

December 10th, 2011

Today I walked from Farnham Common north of Slough on a meandering route into Yiewsley, West London. On the way I passed through Stoke Common which is a lovely bit of heathland that’s very rare here down south. I’ve actually been through here on a previous adventure last year. Also good are Langley Park and Black Park Country Park. Once inside the M25 however the scenery deteriorated pretty rapidly. Mind you, further up the Colne valley there is some pretty good walking. It was well cold though, which you can see from the frost still on the ground in the photos:
