When you are married to a sculptor, you just accept that your two blobs, two stones, a carrot and a stick are just not going to cut mustard.
A combination of three exposures at f/5.6, ISO200.
I used Photoshop HDRpro, but was lazy and stuck with the built in “photrealistic” recipe.
A passing squal in the woods on the way to the sledging slope.

The Langdale Pikes above the New Dungeon Ghyll Hotel.
A composite of three exposures at f/8.0 (1/100, 1/200, 1/640).
I’ve always thought that Langdale is the most beautiful of the Lake District’s valleys – regardless of how you look at it1/640, f7.1, ISO800
Continuing a walk round Bowness on Windermere, this view north up (I think) Scardale. The light on the south facing tops was fantastic.1/125, f/14, ISO100
Here’s the second penguin shot. This Emperor was going for a swim and nothing was going to stop him/her.

In Edinburgh Zoo, to accompany the Chinese Lanterns is a Wishing Tree, or Tree of Hope. Whether conciously or not, it combines chinese and celtic cultures. The banyan tree at Lam Tsuen and the clootie well at Munlochy.

Perhaps it’s because there have been so many ice bubble photographs, I thought I’d do something icy.
This is some ice that had formed in the garden, shot through a reverse 22mm lens. It was shot at 1/400s, and ISO at 3200. Since the lens wasn’t connected to the camera, there was no control over the aperture.
Post production was a slight crop and a slight colour balance adjustment on the blue midtones.
