When venturing into Hackfall this time I took my nifty-fifty (50mm f1.7) and 10-20mm lenses. And for processing I have done little more than tweak the curves, boost the contrast a bit and adjust the white balance.
It's good to settle into a style you're happy with. And it's also good to be capable of shooting diverse subjects: just before heading down into Hackfall, I photographed a nearby enduro race. To say that the two subjects require different approaches is putting it mildly! (Well, for anybody interested, the enduro shots were all shot in shutter priority mode at a shutter speed of 1/500.)
|View from The Banqueting Hall, down to Fishers Hall.|
|The pond, and fountain. I waited for about half an hour for it to spout. It didn't.. (I even went onto the island, getting soaked feet, to check it..)|
|The River Ure.|
|The bluebells are coming out nicely.|
|The Banqueting Hall. Can be hired from the Landmark Trust. To say that it has impressive views is putting it mildly: I think the view from here is possibly my favourite in England.|
