Favourite pictures – York museum gardens

This was one of those shots where I couldn’t actually see the composition when I took the picture, but it turned out ok anyway.

We were walking through the Museum Gardens in the City of York and I saw this tree and the rock placed at the foot of it. I thought it might make a nice picture to include the rock in the foreground, so I bent down to take it but couldn’t see through the viewfinder or see the image on the back of the camera because the sun was too bright. So I set the aperture to about f/22 and the focus just off infinity and guessed where the rock would be with the lens set to 10mm. Fortunately it came out quite nicely!

About

I’m a software developer by profession but I’ve been taking pictures since I was about 8 years old. In that time I’ve owned cameras of all types and sizes from 120 roll film thro’ 35mm to my current Pentax K-5, Ricoh GXR + P10/S10/A12 28mm/A12 50mm, Canon S95 and recently acquired Sony NEX 6.
