chilli-time

Chili Time

Chili peppers on sale in the market in Maidenhead in the UK about 3 weeks ago. It wasn’t quite cold enough that I was tempted to buy some and chew them raw, but if it was now I’d think about it. It’s freezing out! Aperture ƒ/3.5 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 10mm ISO 400 […]

windsor-castle

Windsor Castle

Windsor Castle, as seen from the pavement outside with benches going off into the distance like a moat stopping the tourists trampling on the lawn. More corrupted images this evening and a few I didn’t want to lose including family shots and a couple of long exposure night scene. Email sent off to Warehouseexpress looking […]

lone-plane-over-windsor

Lone plane over Windsor

If you live anywhere north of London it seems you’re in the flight path of one airport or another. Windsor, despite having a great big castle, is no exception and a number of flights flew over in the few hours we spent in the town. Aperture ƒ/5.6 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 17mm ISO […]

Public Seating

Public Seating

Plastic seats outside a house, near yesterday’s home I think. We went for a walk this evening by the reservoir in Inniscarra and I got some nice shots of my family and of the setting sun over the water. Unfortunately when I got home a number of shots were corrupted. I’m not sure why or […]

My Home from Home

What do you do when you get home from holiday? Put a clamp on the wheels of your caravan! I could make a joke about cleaning the wheels of their home, but that’s an obvious one and I’m in a hurry tonight. Got a surprise birthday party to go to soon! Shot somewhere near Slough […]

golden-leaves

Golden Leaves

Continuing on the Burnham Beeches theme, here’s another typical autumn shot. A great many more trees had their leaves than here in Blarney where most trees are naked. While in town this evening I discovered to my dismay that my Canon 10-22 lens is broken. The manual focus ring is completely jammed and the zoom […]

Autumn Leaves

Hues of gold and brown greet the eye in Burham Beeches. Yes I know it’s technically winter but autumn is always associated with falling leaves, while winter is cold and snow falls instead, so please humour me! I do have a couple of other shots of yesterday’s Burnham Beeches photo but I’ll leave those until […]

The beauty of Burnham Beeches

We visited Burnham Beeches last Friday afternoon, on a day when torrential rain was forecast but thankfully the weather forecast was completely wrong. This large forest close to the city of London is an amazing sight to behold with ancient trees, and at this time of year beautiful, vivid (eh Matt?) and colourful leaves that […]
