Photography in Autumn.

Llangorse Lake and the Brecon Beacons. Nikon D80 16-85mm lens, ISO200 1/125sec at f8. Exposure +1/2 stop.

I love autumn – my favourite time for photos.

The photo of Llangorse Lake was taken this time last year (4/10/10). I woke to a thick mist – it was damp and horrible but just the conditions I wanted. From experience I knew that if it’s misty where I live in the Wye Valley then up in the hills it will be blue skies and sun and I’ll look down on the mist below. At first the mist was very thick it wasn’t great for photography so I waited and after a couple of hours it cleared and I took this shot.

My neighbour’s got a large walnut tree and the squirrels have been systematically stripping it:

Nikon D7000, ISO 400, Nikon 300mm f2.8 1/350 sec f4. Cropped. Monopod.

This photo below is from one of my tuition trips last weekend. I love the pony’s expression.

Nikon D7000 ISO 400, 16-85mm lens at 56mm. 1/750 sec at f8.

  1. I agree with you about this time of year. I head back to Oregon next week and then it will be trips to the Pacific coast and the Columbia River Gorge to try and catch some of that mist.
