Aug 18: photo of the month

DSC01172-2I’ve got a little catch-up to do before I have to choose and publish September’s photo so here’s a shot of the brook by Harding Way after the end of the summer drought. Lots of water and greenery and I especially like the hints of purple.

The photo was taken using my Sony alpha 77 II with the zoom on 180mm, f6.3 at 1/320th. I confess to using the ‘auto-correct’ in Microsoft Office which adds a little contrast.

Jul 18: photo of the month

DSC01004Lots of competition this month, I seem to have had lots of photographable experiences and taken halfways decent photos of many of them.

Here’s the best of a super bunch and it’s the moment that James Alexander Bradbury gets his name at the parish church in Wetherby.

The photo was taken using my Sony alpha 77 II with the zoom on 135mm, f6.3 at 1/80th.
