Looking for a new direction in some of my familiar locations and the only way is up. These are three drone shots from sunset in Dunorlan.
I’m still getting used to the camera which is much lower quality than I use for my normal pictures, but I’ll get there!
Out in my usual spots in Dunorlan last weekend and realised when I got there that my favourite old Zeiss lens had a stuck aperture- basically means that you can only focus on one thing at a time.
So some distant shots with no foreground…
and some close ups with blurred backgrounds…
Sometimes, if the weather is nice, I head out to Dunorlan determined to take the most beautiful conventional shots I can, but on a cloudy day like today, I am just as likely to go freaky with a comedy camera or, as today, two.
The black and white shots today are with an infrared camera- this sees the light which is invisible to us and misses what we see. It works even better in harsh sunlight, but I thought it worth a try.
The psychedelic colour pictures are with a lens that I have modded myself- turning around one of the bits of glass at the back of the lens to stop it from focusing properly and to bring out its inner Monet. Although probably without his taste!
I’m not sure yet whether these have worked- I’ll probably look at them in horror in a few months, but for now, here they are.
Continuing my attempt to capture Spring in pictures, a few from Dunorlan:
Possibly a host, but arguable exactly how jocund…
After visiting Bedgebury in the mist a few weeks back, I was determined to get to my favourite, Dunorlan, in similar weather. When I got there two weeks ago, the mist was lighter, but there was also a partially iced over lake:
