I spent a few hours wandering round a very grey and misty Liverpool today, and came up with a few reasonable shots.

Cathedral Colour

Stained Glass Sentinels
Misty Autumn Crown. I used my 50mm prime on this, took two shots, one with the crown in focus and one with the leaves, then did a Focus Stack in Photoshop!

I'm sure the rules are black and white on this one, Sir

What do you mean, I'm the odd one out, Officer?
...and I'm telling you there are NO grey areas in the law!

Haigh Plantations

The Plantations around Haigh Hall are in full Autumn colour at the moment, so I went for a wander to capture the changing seasonal colours in the landscape.

Brockholes Nature Reserve is a Wetland and Wildlife Reserve near Preston, next to Jct 31 of the M6 alongside the River Ribble. It only opened 18 months ago. We visited today on a sunny Autumnal day.
The Summer birds have left and the Winter visitors haven't arrived yet, so it was very quiet, but peaceful and beautiful nontheless!

This month's Photo Contest at Brockholes is 'Fungi', so I was looking in particular for Mushrooms!!

Blue Sky Thinking

.....and talking about experimenting, I couldn't resist this one yesterday.
Love the way the raindrops focussed the clouds and sky upside down!!

This photo has featured previously on here as a Black and White image that was favourably reviewed, so I had a play around with it and came up with this....
