Up Above the Bay

My Travel Tuesday blog post this week is also an extra January Squares for Becky’s theme of Up.

A visit to Colpoy’s Bay for the sunrise saw multiple aircraft contrails crossing the sky. So I put a telephoto zoom on the camera and started isolating interesting clouds while avoiding the contrails.

One Of A Kind

This is my day 1 contribution to Becky’s October Squares on the theme of Kind.

It’s not the European Robin standing on my 600mm lens that is the one of a kind. It’s the one of a kind mix of camera equipment it’s standing on. The lens is an EBC Fujinon 600mm f/5.6 that has been converted to an Olympus OM mount. Out of shot, the lens is being supported by a home made gimbal tripod head. Built before any of the commercial gimbal tripod heads were available.

Throwback Thursday

A Solitary Conifer

Throwback Thursday travels back to Bickerton Hill in southern Cheshire, England in the mid 1990s.

I noticed the tall, blue green conifer sticking out of the surrounding Silver Birch trees and isolated it with a telephoto lens.

Telephoto Perspective 4

This is my day 29 contribution to Becky’s July Squares on the theme of Perspective and another of my telephoto perspective series.

Some interesting clouds over Colpoy’s Bay at sunrise isolated with a telephoto lens. Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic one of my sunrise locations was on a busy route for commercial aircraft.

Some mornings it was possible to count 5 or 6 aircraft in the sky. If they were leaving contrails one option was to isolate the more interesting clouds with a telephoto.

Looking Down on Silver Birch trees in snow from the top of Bickerton Hill in southern Cheshire, England. I was isolating interesting sections of the trees with a telephoto lens.

Telephoto Perspective 1

This is my day 19 contribution to Becky’s July Squares on the theme of Perspective and the first of my telephoto perspective series. I probably should have started posting them much earlier in the month.
