Swallow Falls

Yesterday we visited Swallow Falls near Betws y Coed.

These images are straight from the Olympus EM-1 with only minor tweaks and cropping in Lightroom.
The portrait shot was a 1/2 second exposure; the landscape, 50 seconds with a ‘big-stopper’ neutral density filter.

My disaster of the day was when one leg of my tripod decided it wouldn’t ‘lock’ in the extended position.
I was left, effectively, with a two legged tripod. As useless as custard in a collander!!

Sunset at South Stack

We are in North Wales at the moment. This is the much photographed South Stack Lighthouse, close to Holyhead on Anglesey. Yesterday evening we were lucky enough to get this sky behind the lighthouse.
Three RAW images taken on the Olympus EM-1 and mergeed into a panorama in Lightroom CC. No Photoshop here, all adjustments to the image were in Lightroom.

Brighton West Pier

Photographed on a beautiful sunny Sunday morning, on an early visit to Brighton.
The old pier is still standing, magnificent as ever, and just asking to be photographed.

Rainy Day In London

A sunny lunchtime in London on Friday suddenly turned into this …

There were some very damp people caught out by the rain!
