The doric or tuscan temple on Rievaulx Terrace in North Yorkshire. The incumbent toff nicked the mosaic floor from the choir in nearby Reivaulx Abbey and had it installed here. A gross act of vandalism, without which the mosaic would probably not have survived the ravages of time.
Some more photos I took at this location can be seen on flickr, including a couple of shots of the ionic temple and picture of Nunnington Hall.Tags: architecture, black and white, canon ef s 10 22, canon eos 400d, digital photography, hdr, north yorkshire, rievaulx terrace, temple
As I drove past on the road, the blanket of yellow oilseed rape flowers covering this field was spectacularly cut with swathes of blue. I stopped to take some pictures but after leaving the car, climbing over a fence and walking 100 yards to the edge of the field the effect was completely lost.
I think the blue flowers are borage (or starflower) – presumably the remains of a previous year’s crop.Tags: canon ef s 10 22, canon eos 400d, hessle
I thought I would have a crack at some of those abstract smoke shots made popular by David Nightingale at Chromasia (amongst others). This is the result of about 150 shots over two sessions, and the first one that I was remotely happy with. At some point I will have another go, but for the time being my life is exciting enough.Tags: abstract, canon ef 50mm f1.8 II, canon eos 400d, smoke
The B&Q Warehouse on St Andrews Quay in Hull. The Canon EF-S 10-22mm is a very wide lens, but on this occasion it wasn’t quite wide enoough. To achieve the effect I was after the top left hand corner was tweaked just a little in Photoshop to square it up with the edge of the frame.Tags: architecture, building, canon ef s 10 22, canon eos 400d, digital photography, hdr, hull, st andrews quay
I’m drawn down to the river again by the setting sun, but with nothing particular to take a picture of. I took a few of the sun going down but this was the only one I took looking in the other direction, and it turned out the best. Once again I used a tonemapped HDR layer to pull out detail in the mud and the rocks.Tags: brough, canon ef s 10 22, canon eos 400d, digital photography, east yorkshire, hdr, humber, mud
