Frosty Mesnes Park

I had an hour to spare in Mesnes Park park this morning, and the Winter sunshine combined with the frosty lawns provided plenty of colour!

Up before the Larks this morning!

Seeing how frosty/misty/clear it was at 7am, I took myself off to the highest point hereabouts, Billinge Hill.

Here are the results.

Brockholes Nature Reserve, Preston

After the torrential rain of the last few days, the promise of clear blue skies saw me heading up the M6 to this well kept area of natural beauty.

I was concentrating on Autumn Colour as a theme, and only used my Fuji 50-200mm lens on my new Fuji X-T2 to get close to the subjects.

Kings Moss Mist

As the mist lingered on into the afternoon and the watery Sun in a blue sky warmed the day, I went to one of my favourite local areas for some atmospheric images.
I have used a mixture of Velvia colour, Acros black and white, and Tonality tones to create different effects on the images here.

Fuji X-T2, 10-24mm and 60mm Fuji lenses.

Haigh Plantations Autumn Colour

Three reasons why I really enjoyed this trip out to the Haigh Plantations:

1. I had my wonderful sister with me!
2. I had my new Fuji X-T2 camera for its first outing!
3. It's one of my favourite locations for Nature Photography!
