Corfe Castle

And so our annual club trip arrived and went in seemingly no time at all, but the first full day of me being there saw me heading for Corfe for sunrise. Having never been to the location, I just narrowly missed the sunrise due to trying to find the right spot, but I know for next time. Once on location, I wasn't going to waste the early start, so started snapping away first taking straight forward landscape images, then it occurred to me, this mist in the valley would look great in a panoramic shot, and here is the result. It's not bad, even if I do say so myself, at least it's pleasing to my eye. Met a couple of friendly photographers up there who merrily took the mick out of me missing the sunrise, but it was all good natured banter and they shared what they had got, I'm not jealous.... honest.

Crested Gecko - Correlophus ciliatus

A quick shot from tonight's session at the Nottingham Outlaws Photographic Society where various creatures were brought in for us to shoot. Loved this shot because it was the sharpest of the lot and the tongue being out helped it a great deal

Padley Gorge-ous

On the hunt for a decent landscape for assignment 4 of my photography course, I made my way to Padley Gorge and spent a couple of hours there. I'm really glad I chose to wear wellies, it was really muddy and wet, and I really tested how waterproof they were.
