This image was almost my last ever because within minutes of taking it we were walking out along the cliff path to St. Just volunteer
coastwatch station in Cornwall, England - I was carrying a heavy Canon 300mm f2.8 IS lens and 1D camera across my upturned forearms, I didn't see the trip coming and
in falling, I almost rolled over the 100 foot cliff! Lesson learned - buy Lighter Gear! From this point I kept looking to go lighter and smaller and eventually Sony
came up with a brilliant mirrorless camera and lens setup that solved my problem.More »
I picked this image out because it raises the issue of very narrow Depth Of Field [DOF]. The idea is to separate the subject
from the background mostly by using Fast lenses with wide Apertures such as f1.4, f2, f2.8 etc. thus causing the viewer to focus on the intended object.
Some folks abhor it, however I just keep finding myself doing it and it only works occasionally - I'll leave the viewer to make up their own mind.
There are more examples to be found, if you look through the images, no doubt you will discover them.
This is the Church of St Peter and St. Paul in the village of Muchelney in the "Somerset Levels" in S.W. England. Historically villages in "the levels" have flooded
over the centuries so the Abbeys and Churches were all built on higher ground as the lower areas flood almost every winter. However In 2013/2014 the village was so badly hit by flooding that it was
cut off for several months and the only access was by a boat supplied by the Burnham-on-Sea Rescue.

This rat image was taken at RSPB Radipole lake in Weymouth, Dorset, England. If you looked at this image, I'd hope you would like to know what happened next....?
Well, a split second after this image was taken, Rattie dived under and disappeared but shortly reappeared on the adjacent footpath.

I picked this image out because it is of Stourhead in Wiltshire. This is a place of national pilgrimage in the fall. They have a hotline so that
prospective pilgrims ;-) can find out the best time to see the leaves in Autumn. This particular vista must be posted thousands of times on the web
and I don't apologies for posting it once more.Stourhead NT »
