My Favourite time of year for photography

Its starting to get to my favourite time of year for photography, the time we have very early dark nights, and later sunrises.

I recently stayed in one of my favourite location up in Northumberland, and I was woken to a bright light beaming through the window, I havent moved as quick to get ready and head out with the camera, I didn’t have to go far as the shot I had in mind was right out the frnt door of the shepherds hut we were staying in.

The sun was rising behind the hills in the distance with the Shepherds hut as my focal point in this shot

Shot using the Sony A6000 and Samyang 12mm. 0.5 Secs | ISO 125| F16 | using a Nisi polariser, and a 0.9 grad. 3 shots combined at 1 stop intervals

The cloud formation was just spectacular But for this shot I had to bracket at 1 stop intervals because I was getting unwanted sun-flare that wasn’t helping the image at all. I think there is a time and a place for sun-flare and this wasn’t it.

So like I said I had to bracket the shots, I took 3 in total all shot in manual mode and manual focus set at F16, the shutter speed changed as the different bracketed shots were fired, and all images were processed in Lightroom.

I am pretty pleased with the outcome of this shot and I definitely think that the clouds made it work better.

    Wow those shutter speeds must have been very different. Love the effect on the clouds inthe third pic. I’d love to know about all the settings in that pic if you’d be happy to share them? It ios a very photogrnic place too. #mysundayphoto

    The lighting in the first shot is spectacular! I like your controlled use of HDR (I’m assuming… either that or some decent photoshop work…). The second shot is my favourite – that storm rolling in over the hills is wonderful! Looks like a brilliant place to stay. #MySundayPhoto

      Well it’s sort of HDR just not as processed. I’ve tried to keep it as natural as possible. Yeah I do like that shot with the hills lit up

    Hi Lew, it never amazes me how fast we can move when there is a photo opportunity. What a lovely sequence of photos, I particularly like the moodiness of the second one.

    Ive love the top imae. The ‘blotchy’ uneven hut really contrasts well with the patchy sky

    Gorgeous photos. The top one is definitely my favourite – so many textures and colours.

      It was an experience. Nothing beats the peacefulness of the country

    That is a little hut but what a beautiful location. Love the clouds and colour in your photos.
