Helvellyn Composite.

Morning, I thought id share a composite image that i created recently for a bit of fun.

I am still yet to climb Striding edge, but will complete this in the summer.

As i have mentioned in previous posts, i do these type of images as i really enjoy thinking of a concept and then trying to execute the idea, and if nothing else it certainly hones my photoshop skills making me quicker and understand all the tools more in depth.

Thanks

A cold trip to Helvellyn.

Nikon D800 f8 1.5seconds ISO100 with various flash bursts around the scene.

 

Last week i headed out to try and take some pics up Helvellyn in the lakes. I was losing light as i didn't plan on the amount of weight i carried would slow me down so much, and so i pitched up here rather then planned for the evening. 

I awoke at 3am and the place was covered in snow. At first light there was an absolute white out, and was very thankful for carrying a GPS with me as navigating would of been near on impossible in zero visibility. 

So photo wise it was a failure but a good heavy load carry is a well received for a bit of Phys after the indulgent new year.

Happy New Year - With some GF1 images.

Lumix GF1 images Lake district Kendal

Happy New year to you all. 

I spent New Year up in the Lake District which was a fantastic time.

We had the weather on our side, but the drive home was abit of fun in the gale force winds. 

Santa was kind enough to get me a Lumix GF1 to play with. I used to use the Cannon G10 for my everyday compact to carry about with me, but i was not impressed with the noise it produces, and in my opinion produces really poor quality images. 

A few mates of mine have started a

GF1 group

and i was impressed with the little compact that they have all gotten attached too. 

Lumix are now selling the GF3 £300, but this camera doesn't have a hot shoe, The GF2 has a really annoying touch screen and so the GF1 is certainly the one that you want. Mine was off ebay for £120 which i thought was a steal. 

I had to purchase a lens, and so went for the 20mm pancake lens.

All the images in this post are taken with the GF1 using the 20mm lens.
