    Pictures from Stratford-on-Avon

    When we went to Gloucestershire in the summer we visited Stratford-on-Avon where I took some pictures with both my Pentax K5 DSLR and my Minolta 505 si super 35mm SLR. On that day we took a trip on a river boat, had a walk round the town, had a nice meal in a restaurant and took a tourist bus tour around the historic sights. That obviously gave me lots of opportunities to take some pictures and these are the ones...

    Snowshill Manor National Trust pictures

    When we stayed in Gloucestershire recently one of the places we visited was Snowshill Manor house which is a national trust property and this post has a collection of photos which I took whilst we were there. Snowshill Manor Pictures I actually took two cameras with me on the visit to snowshill – my Pentax K5 DSLR, and a Minolta 505si super 35mm film camera fitted with a standard minolta 28 – 80 kit zoom. Each of the pictures shown...

    Minolta Dynax 505si Super sample pictures

    We recently went on holiday to Gloucestershire and as well as my Pentax K5 DSLR I also took along a couple of film cameras. One of them, which was slipped into my bay at the last moment (because it had just turned up from eBay that morning), was a Minolta Dynax 505si, and these are some of the Minolta Dynax 505si Super sample pictures I took on the trip with that camera. All these pictures were taken using the standard...

    Dover's Hill in Gloucestershire

    This is a post with some pictures of The National Trust’s Dover’s Hill in Gloucestershire which I took on a recent visit there. We only stayed a few minutes at this viewpoint over the Gloucestershire countryside, so I didn’t get many pictures, but these were my favourite of the 20 or so I took. A couple of these shots were actually constructed from 3 images taken using the camera’s bracketing function and merged using Lightroom’s new ‘merge to HDR’ function...

    Bourton-on-the-water snapshots

    This is a family post with pictures I took on a recent day spent in Bourton-on-the-water in Gloucestershire. View them using the gallery below. Bourton-on-the-water pictures Although there was a forecast for some rain about it turned out to be a beautiful summers day with uninterrupted  sunshine from the moment we arrived. Too much sunshine actually – I don’t like the heat much. I’d taken my DSLR kit with me which consists of a Pentax K5, Sigma 18-125mm HSM zoom,...

    Favourite pictures – Eddie

    While we were visiting Gloucestershire recently we went to Bourton-on-the-Water to visit the model village there. As we were walking through the village I saw this dog playing in the water and stopped to get a few pictures of him. Although I don’t know the dog’s actual name, for the purposes of this post I’ve called him Eddie because to me he looked like an Eddie. I took this with my Sigma 18-125 HSM zoom fitted to the Pentax K5...

    Evening in Gloucestershire

    On a recent trip to Gloucestershire I took out my Pentax K5 fitted with a Sigma 18-125 HSM zoom for an evening walk and took these pictures of the local countryside bathed in late evening sunshine. All these pictures have been imported into Lightroom CC for post processing and then exported at 1600px on the longest edge. To see them at full size follow this link. As well as my K5 I also took along a Pentax SFXn loaded with...
