Down By The River

…..The River Trent to be precise. I had a little time to kill yesterday afternoon and whilst it was cold, the sun was out and the air was crisp. I had to go to West Bridgford so although it was match day at Nottingham Forest I found a place to park and went for a walk on Victoria Embankment from Wilford Suspension Bridge (like a toy Golden Gate) up to Trent Bridge. There are several full size images here so apologies for the slow loading. I think they are worth it.


The late afternoon sun on the river was very dramatic, lots of long shadows and strong contrasts. I used HDRPro on several of these to keep some detail in the foreground and most are post processed in Snapseed. All are taken from my phone. The one below goes against the basic principle of looking directly at the sun. I still have ‘white spot’.



The image below has a bit of the Hitchcock about it. There were a about 50 gulls sitting to the landing dock all looking at me in a menacing way. I shouted at them to try to get a bit of movement but all I got was a shrug and funny looks from passers-by. This one is full size, shot with HDRPro and tweaked in Snapseed.



The last image is a full iPhone5 panoramic from the mid-point between the bridges. Uploaded at the full size so you will get the best effect if you open it in another window. The resolution from the new iPhone is really quite impressive.

Goose Fair


Today I took the boys to Goose Fair for a few hours. It’s a huge scary cashpit but they are tolerant and reasonable and seem to enjoy the visual/aural/nasal sensory fest as much as I do. I’ll filter the 100+ shots a little later but this is a highly processed HDR shot from the new phone. #Olloclip can just about be gripped with a thumb and the slight vignetting on wide angle cropped after.

Nottingham Castle

Yesterday evening I went to Nottingham Castle for the preview of the Annual Open Exhibition. I have more pictures to post later but this totally over processed image stands on its own. The biggest contribution came from the evening sun. There’s not an app for that yet.
