My Travel Tuesday blog post this week is traveling back to the market town of Nantwich in southern Cheshire, England in the mid 1980s.
This is part of the town square and some of the buildings surrounding it. Known locally as The Square it’s the center of the oldest part of the town. The town has one of the highest concentrations of listed buildings in England with lots of good examples of Tudor and Georgian architecture.
A fire in December of 1583 destroyed most of the town to the east of the River Weaver which runs through the town.
Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment at sunrise and my contribution to Jez Braithwaite’s Water Water Everywhere #40 Photo Challenge.
This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Under the Sun prompt.
I decided to go with a small selection of photos from this spring and summer when I was testing various lenses in a variety of types of sunlight.
Backlit Maple leaves. Taken with the 7artisans 55mm lens wide open at f/1.4.
A Fern frond in dappled sunlight. Taken with the Kamlan 50mm lens wide open at f/1.1.
Dandelions in the shade with sunlight on the background. Taken with the 7artisans 35mm lens wide open at f/1.2.
My Macro Monday post this week is a follow up to my post a few weeks ago about the eggs of a Large White Butterfly hatching.
These are two Large White Butterfly caterpillars on Nasturtium leaves. I suspect that one is from the eggs I photographed. Because of the size disparity between the two I suspect that one is from a different group of eggs that hatched at a different time.
I went down to Colpoy’s Bay 45 minutes before sunrise yesterday morning.
This is a 3 minute exposure of the clouds moving across Colpoy’s Bay at dawn. Taken using the Live Composite setting on an Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II. The base exposure was 1 second with a further 179 exposures of 1 second composited in the camera to record the movement of the clouds.
I suppose a Live Composite image is similar to a Collage which is the Cosmic Photo Challenge prompt this week.
