    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...

    Blickling Hall in late December

    Today we went to Blickling Hall, a National Trust property in Norfolk, for a visit. It was one of those really cold, but very clear days that you get in the winter with the sun very low in the sky which made the scenery beautifully lit up but also increased the possibility of flare if the sun made it into any of the shots. Unfortunately, I misread the website notification of the opening times so when we arrived, although the...

    Autumnal St Nicholas Church

    I went over to St Nicholas church in Stevenage today to take some pictures with one of my Miranda 35mm film cameras, the Miranda Fv, and I also took along my Sony Nex to take some control pictures. Because the film I used in the Miranda was black & white, I’ve converted a number of these pictures to black & white as well to get a better comparison of the pictures which I develop from the film. All these pictures...

    Ickworth house pictures

    This post is to publish the best of the pictures I took at Ickworth House in Suffolk which we visited on the way to our holiday home in April this year. This is mainly done as a record of our visit, but it might also be useful to anyone thinking of paying a visit to this property. Unfortunately, because we were on route to another destination, we only stayed a couple of hours, which was a shame because on that...

    Pictures of Framlingham town and castle

    While we were on holiday in Suffolk last month we visited the town of Framlingham to look round the castle and town. These are the pictures of Framlingham I took whilst we were there and I’ve posted them mainly as a family record of our trip. We were very lucky with the weather the whole week and this day was no different, with unbroken sun for the most part once the Sun broke out. I used the Prime lens kit...

    Walk around the suffolk countryside

    This is a post highlighting a series of pictures I took on our recent holiday in Suffolk in the UK. I took these pictures on the first full day of our trip when we went for a walk in the local countryside around the village of Horham which is about 5 miles from Eye, to explore a bit. We were lucky for the entire week in that he weather was clear and although it wasn’t hot in the April sunshine...

    Weekly photo challenge: Horizon

    this week’s weekly challenge is Horizons. I always see that word in it’s literal sense and think of the line between the sea and the sky. I therefore submit this picture as my interpretation of Horizons. I took this picture a couple of years ago with a Pentax K200D and a pentax 18-55 Standard Kit lens. The location is Wells-next-the-sea in Norfolk.

    More Raby Castle photographs

    These are the best of the other photographs I took whilst at Raby Castle in County Durham Raby Castle Pictures All these pictures were taken on the same day I took the courtyard picture which I posted a few days ago with my Pentax K5. The majority of them were with either a sigma 18-125 standard zoom or my Tamron 10-24mm Super Wide angle. It was quite a dull and grey day when we arrived at the Castle, having spent the...

    Beacon Hill in Leicestershire

    We are away for a few days staying with Jan’s parents in Loughborough and have been on a trip to Beacon Hill in Leicestershire. As usual this has been an opportunity to take some photos!James presented his usual arguments that he didn’t want to go and he wouldn’t enjoy it but we packed Emma and him in the car anyway and we drove the very short drive from Loughborough to Beacon Hill lower car park. I remember that I’ve been...
