My image this week is part of a Hawthorn tree. It was growing near the top of a hill and the rising sun was back lighting the young leaves. It makes a good colour image but my thoughts were the tones it would show in B&W. I’ll leave you to judge the image for yourself.
Nikon D7200 with a Sigma C 150-600 mm lens.
Shot at f5 using the 150mm setting on the lens and ISO 800.
Feedback always welcome.
Took this on a walk around Hillsborough forest park, it was shot with the bright sunny sky behind it. Post edited in Lightroom and finished in Sliver Efex Pro, Nik Collection by DxO.
Thank you for visiting, comments are welcome.
On my way back home from picking up some decorating supplies I stopped of at Hillsborough forest park. Well I needed to get some air and a break from working. With the fine weather the park was busy and a parking spot was hard to find. I was in the park around 2.30 pm. This time of year the sun starts to set around 3.30 / 4 pm. So time to find a few shots on my walk around the lake. The low winter sun was throwing a warm light onto the lake and trees and I wasn’t the only photographer out and about.
Right lets get started.
Holly and cobwebs, the low sun back lighting and adding a rim light to the leaves and stems.
Blue skies and reflections.
The light breaking through the trees spot lighted these young ferns.
Sycamore leaf in its winter wardrobe.
I don’t know the name off this fungus , but if you were ever a Star Trex fan it might be call the Enterprise. Google it if you never saw it.
Mute swan Cygnet
A Cormorant taking off, it uses it feet to help it get airborne by pushing them against the water surface.
A more peaceful image of a duck silhouetted against the brightly light water.
Thank you for joining me,
Later evening sun back lighting these leaves.
Thank you for viewing.
