I Won’t Mention the ‘C’ Word

Cannon Beach, Oregon.

If your email in box is anything like mine it’s been completely overrun this week. Every business imaginable seems to be emailing to tell me what they are doing about this virus. Quite a few of these I haven’t heard from for years and some I’ve never heard of. This may sound callous, but I’m … Continue reading I Won’t Mention the ‘C’ Word

Friday Image No.213

Bolivian volcano. Olympus EM5, Panasonic 45-150 lens, ISO200, f/7.1, 1/320". It was 2014 when I shot this volcano image and it’s languished on my hard drive ever since. The volcano’s in Bolivia and this shot was from our base camp about halfway to the summit. Yes, I had the “pleasure” of climbing this. The lower … Continue reading Friday Image No.213

Crater Lake

Today I thought I would share an image I shot back in May2016. It’s taken in one of my favorite countries – America. I love visiting the USA. It’s a vast country with a varied and stunning landscape. I also find the people very friendly and polite so it usually makes for a great trip. … Continue reading Friday Image No. 121

Some areas which you would expect to be free from noise, such as clouds and blue sky, are starting to display faint traces of noise. These then become quite exaggerated when processed hard with Nik filters. In … Continue reading Revenge of the EM5

Processing Friday Image No.92

Last week I posted Friday Image No.92 and made comment about my having some kind of image blindness. In this particular case I think it was down to the conditions I was shooting in and the expectations I had in my mind. I often go out hoping for wonderful light and clean air, only to … Continue reading Processing Friday Image No.92

Friday Image No.92

Last week I shared Friday No.91 which was taken on my first outing with the Olympus EM5. Later the same day I shot this image with the EM5. At the time I liked the scene but the conditions were very poor. It’s only now that I recognise I captured the image I wanted to. I … Continue reading Friday Image No.92
