Poking through the woods

We went out for a walk about a week ago it was such a lovely Saturday and it had been a while since I had the chance to do some proper photography that this was my chance to do some catching up. The photo below was taken about a mile or two from my (new) house.

A few observations: When shooting under a woodland canopy your manual settings which were spot on out in the open suddenly go completely out of whack, if you don't really care about illuminating the tree frame then meter for the background, otherwise you'll need to bump up the ISO quite a bit (and I really don't like noise)

Also at first I thought I'd set this one as a monochrome picture, playing with wide contrast differences but looking at it with colour again I think I prefer it that way.

So here you are, Carnethy Hill on a bright autumn afternoon.

Talvi Tuli (Winter Came)

I'd make other Game of Thrones jokes if I knew more about it but that's the best you're gonna get for this picture I'm afraid.

And in case you're wondering, Stark here is a hardware retailer for professionals much like ScrewFix here in the UK

16th c. houses, Caen town centre

Colloquially known as "The Post Office museum" as this was what was housed there until recently, these two traditionnal Norman-style houses right in the city centre of Caen were somehow spared during the heavy WWII bombing of the city and have recently had their facade restored.

If you look closely you can see some intricate patterns in between the wooden beams.

The Ateneum, Helsinki, January 2018

With a bit of animation. I don't recall if this was my original intent but with 5 clear consecutive shots why not just animate it.
