Although I live just outside Worcester and have done for many years, it is not a city I visit often and when I do i tend to pop in get what I need and come straight home. Last week I had to go into the city to collect my camera from the repair shop. On this occasion I took the opportunity to explore along the river and round Diglis basin, which marks the end of the Birmingham and Worcester Canal.
During September I was playing with the Twist 60 optic. I’d forgotten the effect was most noticeable on a full frame camera and for the first half of the month I was using my A77 which has a CMOS sensor.
Its another collection of unrelated photos. I hope you enjoy them.
It was a misty morning when I took the dog out on the Old Hills this morning.
The field across the road used to contain cattle but in about April that all changed. Funfords Mini Farm arrived. They provide a home for rescued animals and have goats, pigs, sheep, geese, ducks and hens. It’s an amazing collection all looked after by Dave with help from Shadow and Shelby, his dogs.
It was a beautiful morning today when I was out early on the Old Hills. There was still some mist collecting in lower lying areas and the Malvern Hills were blanked in cloud.
After what seems like a very gloomy August, the sun has come out in September.
I was working in the office in Malvern today and escaped at lunchtime to Peachfield Common. I had my camera with my Lensbaby Twist 60 Optic. I wanted to get some shots of the Harebells. For some reason they don’t seem to grow on the Old Hills and as they a very much a symbol of summer for me, I missed seeing them.
Today it felt like summer.
It was a beautiful, hot, sunny morning on the Common. I took my Twist 60 and macro filters to play with. The harebells were looking amazing.
Welcome to the third post in our Lensbaby Circle Blog.
Primroses are a flower I’ve always struggled to get good photos of so I thought I’d have a play using different Lensbaby optics and lenses. Their delicate colour is difficult to capture and when I try post processing the results the colour doesn’t seem to look real. I got my tripod out along with my macro converters and lenses enabling me to get really close. The colours are straight out of the camera. Despite taking notes I still managed to mix up which lenses and optics I used. I need to get more organised.
I am pleased with the results below, I hope you enjoy them.
I did have the Sweet 80, Plastic optic, Single glass optic, Soft focus optic, Edge 80, Twist 60 and Sweet 35 out.
