I took a walk to Weoley Hill on a grey afternoon, trying to capture a “moody” image of the snow.
These two images are the result.
A fresh layer of snow had me heading up to the Clent Hills. Always one of my favourite places to go for a walk and with the sun trying to make an appearance I headed up to the four stones.
The light was fantastic, a passing photographer commented “how bad the light was today”, really?
Last year I wandered around Birmingham’s Frankfurt Market. This year I returned but decided to photograph the canal around the ICC and Brindley Place.
I timed my visit to coincide with dusk in the hope of keeping the sky with some colour and not the black/brown that is in many photographs taken in the dark.
Autumn is well and truly under way, albeit wet under foot this year.
This image was the result of a walk deep in to the Lickey Hills to find some autumn colour.
Every so often I like to run a roll of film through my camera, this time its Fuji Velvia 50.
I had this roll loaded for ages so as the sun was shining a trip in to the city centre was in order. I have posted a similar image before, but was keen to see how the velvia handled the gold colours and the blue sky compared to my digital camera.
I must say I am blown away with the saturation and depth of colours.
As promised my effort for subject 9 Birmingham Parks, http://www.birminghamviewpoint.com/
This one is of Selly Oak park, I had to be a bit inventive as there isn’t a lot to photograph in the park,.
I settled on the sun creating shadows through the trees, with the path heading of in to the distance. I am still experimenting with my composition somewhat so this task every month sets me a challenge to work to.
Ok, so there is a shortage of fields in Birmingham so I had a drive out in to the countryside to find some.
Like many photographers a field with round bales of hay freshly cut is one of the “must have” shots.
I was quite pleased with this one, a black & white conversion completes the picture.
