Twenty minutes

‘At rest’

More pics below.

Grabbed a quick twenty minutes photography after dropping my wife at the train station.

The light looked really promising, there way no way I was going to miss it.

I headed straight for Hastings old town and the beach where the fishing fleet resides. Light changes fast, there was no time to lose.

Grabbed my trusty little Fuji X10, my carry everywhere camera, and went about snapping as fast as I could getting the best compositions I could find.

Twenty minutes later and the best of the light gone, I headed back home to sort out the kids for school.

Posted one for Images not Words, below are the best of the rest.

‘Early start’

Here are two other pics taken yesterday at the same time as my ‘Images not Words’ shot. All three were taken from the same spot but feature slightly different main elements. Yesterday’s being the crow in flight (see below), one being the jogger and one that focuses on the sun bursting through the clouds. In the end I decided to choose the bird shot for the project as it gives as sense of being free.

Now I have to decide what to shoot today.

Old Roar Gill

‘Old Roar Gill’

A birthday party last night meant returning today to collect the car.

With coat, hat, gloves and hiking shoes I decided to wander through Alexander Park up towards Old Roar Gill.

One camera, one lens and a Manfrotto PIXI mini tripod.

Ended up walking for nearly three hours in the mud, rain and hail.

Was a productive photo walk nonetheless.

I think this shot encapsulates the mood.
