Friday Image No.170

Oxford river reflection. Fuji X-T2, 16-55 lens, ISO200, f/8.0, 1/15″ handheld (resting on a bridge).

Last week was all go. I spent a few days in Oxford visiting friends and shooting some architecture. Then my Mac gave up on me and I needed to take it to a repair centre. Now that it’s fixed, I’m busy rebuilding it with all my applications.

Fortunately, I have been able to recover my Lightroom Catalogue, or I would be crying. The event has though prompted me to come up with a better backup plan for my image library. I’m going to write about that in my next newsletter as it’s a common problem amongst photographers.

To help calm my nerves I thought I would share this image. It’s taken in Oxford on the way back from the town centre. As is always the case, the best sunsets happen when you’re not in a picturesque setting. Fortunately, I was able to find a vantage point over the river for a great reflection, framing it with the winter trees. I really rather like the shot, especially as it’s handheld with no filters.
