Venice - Long exposure on the Grand Canal

This was a beautiful evening. This exposure was over 4 minutes at f6.3 shot at 32 ISO. A ten stop ND filter was used.

Bringing in the New Year with a Nikon D850 and a Wolf Moon.

I eagerly awaited the 3:59pm 1st January moonrise, but the clouds rolled in and it was not to be. I had to wait a couple of hours to captrure the Wolf Moon. So called because a supermoon at this time of year has a tendency to cause wolves to howl.

The Royal Victoria Dock Rocks!

Yesterday I had the opportunity to check out the Docklands in London. Specifically, the Excel Arena and Victoria Dock. What a development.

There was a definite vibe to the area and Millions of pounds are being poured into adjacent docks to complete what will be a comprehensive revitalization of what was, half a century ago, the worlds busiest port.

I couldn't resist the Emirates cable car ride and as the light was improving at the end of the first round trip, I talked the guy into letting me do it again :-)

Nice Twilight.

Mixed light has always been a favourite of mine. Here is the view from our balcony this evening.

Nice Portishead Sunrise

My wife called me to alert me of the sunrise this morning. Below is the result. What you see is 6 images spliced together to help keep shadow and highlight detail.

Bowled Over this Summer!

It has been an interesting summer. Tangie and I had a great time at the Manchester County Cricket Club where we saw England give India a good licking. It's the first time either of us had witnessed world class cricket.

From the Window Seat of a 777.

It's not often I take a shot from the seat of a jet airliner and think it worthy of sharing. On this occasion however, the light was hitting the Manhattan Island skyline very nicely and despite the usual distortion and grime that comes with an aircraft window, I still managed to get this image. For the technically minded, I was using my Canon G1x. Manual focus on infinity. Aperture priority @ f16.
