Ullswater Views

I visited the Cumbria Photography Show at the Rheged Centre near Penrith on Sunday May 14th, and inspired by the images on show, I travelled down to Ullswater to see if I could capture my own images of a small part of the Lake District.
I'd brought my Fuji XT2 with 10-24mm and 55-200mm lenses along with my new tripod just in case!

Crosby Beach Sunset

I took advantage of a gloriously clear Spring Sunset to take some more images of Antony Gormley's 'Another Place' installation on the beach at Crosby.
The added feature was an almost full Moon rising opposite the setting Sun!

Street Life In Low Sun

The bright, low Winter Sun proved ideal for High Contrast Black and White images around Wigan this morning.
I like to use this technique to create light halos around the people I photograph, whilst preserving their anonymity, so that they're just 'subjects'.
