After Clouds, Sunshine

If ever there was a metaphor for the troubled times that we are living through this must surely be it.

Lockdown in the UK continues with little sign of the clouds lifting, sunnier times are still someway off it seams.

At least drab days and flat light have been replaced with a little proper winter so a chance to get out, on foot, for my daily excercise with camera in hand – but no tripod and no lingering !

Dove Stone Reservoir in the “West Riding of Yorkshire”, as the signs proudly announce, provides some photographic interest. In particular on the southern side of the reservoir there are a couple of lone trees, a silver brich and an oak, and no photographer can resist a lone tree.

At first from afar.

…and then…

…and more…

Sony A7Riv – Sony FE 24-105mm f/4 G @ 24mm – f/16 – 1/320s – iso 320

Sony A7Riv – Sony FE 24-105mm f/4 G @24mm – f/16 – 1/200s – iso 320

…and finally…

Sony A7Riv – Sony FE 24-105mm f/4 G @ 24mm – f/16 – 1/250s – iso 320

… and oh my word – the detail and dynamic range, I think I am going to like this camera !

Postscript – still getting to grips with the depth of field – 24mm no problem but at the longer end of the 24-105mm a lot more care is need even at f/16 – work in progress.

Take a look at this post to understand why I used ISO 320 in all of these images.
