Even on the drabbest of days, and we have a few of those, you can find little pockets of color along the canal – in this case at Hebden Bridge – iPhone photos.Continue reading “Colour on the Canal”
At the Market
Anyone who has been to France knows that the French have an obsession with food, culturally it is a very important part of their lives.
Landscape or Skyscape
The rule of thirds, which is not really a rule, would have you put the horizon on a third. But which third ?
More colourful Cabanes – this time in Le Chateau d’Oleron. A number of these old Oyster farming cabins have been converted into artists studios whilst others remain in their original use, all in all a rather odd mix – still they do make good photographic subjects although enough is enough and other subjects await.
Ile d’Oléron is the largest of France’s Atlantic islands.
La Grande Roue
Big and Round – and on the seafront at Ronce-les-Bains on a sunny and busy Sunday afternoon. Only one approach to such a subject – Fisheye of course.
Nothing spells spring more than dappled light falling on an English Bluebell wood and of course this is a busy time for photographers.
The Alcazar of Jerez or more correctly Jerez de la Frontera (the frontier being between the Muslim and Christian worlds) is one of the most emblematic monuments in the city. It is situated in the Southeastern corner of a wall that once enclosed the ancient city. The Alcazar comprised walls, towers and gates and constituted a complex defensive system.
Backstreets & Bodegas
Sherry is everywhere in Jerez – it really is the only game in town. A photowalk around the backstreets reveals bodega after bodega.
Cádiz is a city and port in the region of Andalusia in southwestern Spain.
Cruising into Cadiz

Communism – Alive & Well
It appears that communism is alive and well in the Portuguese town of São Brás de Alportel – indeed it is still a major force on the political scene particularly in rural parts of Portugal.
Exposure Lift Colour Cast
There have been a couple of reports online of a magenta colour cast appearing when G9 raw files are exposure lifted in Adobe Lightroom. I have to date not noticed this myself although I have to say I am not wholly convinced by Lightroom’s raw conversion of the G9 files. It may well be that I have not noticed this reported issue since I tend to ensure that I do not significantly under-expose images and therefore tend not to have lift exposure significantly in post processing.
