A Whitstable sunrise

I decided to get up at the crack of dawn, literally, and head down to the beach to experiment with the sunrise. I didn't take a classic but I quite like these I took with long exposure (30 secs and f/22 with my ND filter:

I took a whole lot more including this gallery:

Ghosts in the water at Whitstable in the Observer

I submitted this photo to the Guardian Witness. I call it Ghosts in the water as it looks a tad ethereal. I like how silhouettes of the (I assume) friends are a little indistinct. It was taken in July 2013 on my old camera, a Nikon D3000.  Settings: f/11, 1/500 sec, ISO-100, focal length 300mm.

 And so it was accepted and published in the Observer’s The New Review, both on their website (https://witness.theguardian.com/assignment/579b3a56e4b075867609e5aa?page=3) and in the physical paper. I couldn’t be happier. If you want to buy a print, please let me know…

A walk along Whitstable Beach

I decided to take advantage of some good light today and went for a walk from Seasalter to Swalecliffe along the beach through Whitstable.

I thought I'd take some pictures. Every 100 paces, in the direction I was facing at that point. I kept my camera setting constant:

f/11

1/200 sec

ISO-100

55mm

My first attempt at blurring clouds and water

Last night I popped down the beach for what I hoped would be another glorious Whitstable sunset. Sadly, it wasn't great at all. Too much cloud over Sheppyey. But nevermind. I took this instead;

Taken with my D5500 and my new Sigma wide-angle lens, with a Tiffen ND 3.0 filter. It was at f/22 and 73 secs, and ISO 100. I don't think it's too bad!

A year of Canterbury Catherdral

Starting in December 2014, I tried to take a photo of Canterbury Cathedral once a week.

It didn't quite work out. For various reasons (illness, other commitments, a week of rain) I only managed 50 shots, sometimes weekly, occasionally 2 in a week.

I took the photos at 51.290880, 1.063692 on University Road in Canterbury.  I always took the photos around 8.30am. I used my old Nikon D3300. I always took the pictures at 1/125 and f/11. However, some of them are edited when the light was so bad you could barely see anything.

Anyway, here it is:
