Old Boat on the river

Old boat on the River Thames at Richmond,London.

I was not entirely sure that I would get any photos this week. The weather was wonderful mid week but that’s when I was working. So along comes my weekend off and its nothing but heavy grey skies for as far as the eye can see. This Sunday (19th May) a little old raggedy vessel caught my attention as we were walking along the River Thames near Richmond, London.
As Mr T Overgaard says, always carry a camera. You never know.

Lion Head

Along the River Thames in London, particularly on the north side, mostly hidden from view are a series of Lion Heads acting as mooring points.

Looking out to sea

For some time now I have been enchanted by the stillness and serenity of the sea early in the morning.

Scrabbling about road side.

In England it is Bank Holiday / Easter Monday, the 22nd April, this is a public holiday. Although the weather is nice an sunny on the south east coast of England it is very hazy. Previously I had seen a large patch of neglected scrub-land on the side of the road leading up to the South Downs. It is full of brambles, stinging nettles and flowers. On closer inspection it seemed to give some photographic potential with a macro lens. They are all hand held shots. Olympus EM1X and 60mm macro lens.

In camera photo stacking. Olympus & 60mm macro lens. To do this you must have a perfectly still subject and photographer. Its rather difficult to do stacking with things that keep buzzing about.
