Autumn Colours

I was looking for some Autumn colours (with red as well as gold) today and struggled at Branston Water Park (Staffordshire) but I did see the sun shining through these trees that had a little red colour and thought it would capture well.

The shot is made up from 5 Bracketed shots of 1/13, 1/15, 1/20, 1/25 and 1/30sec (0.3EV) and then merged as a HDR in Lightroom

The warm weather might be disappearing after today, but at least we have the colours to look forward to.

Cotton Dell in Autumn…..but no Dippers

I went to Cotton Dell (near Alton Towers) in Staffordshire this morning to see if I could find any Dippers in the stream as they are known to be there.

They eluded me, however, being prepared for a disappointment I took along my 14-24 f/2.8 to get some photos of autumn in full swing. It was great to be shooting with an ISO of just 64 as it meant I didn’t need to use any ND filters to extend the shutter speed to get the water silky smooth.
