Canon Powershot G10
Taken on an overcast day
I wanted to try and capture the close of days and the changing sky. They were taken at a viewpoint near Nympsfield in Glos on a very windy late afternoon / evening with intermittent rain. I used the trees as foreground interest to balance the images - This first image reminded me of a film clip of a nuclear explosion just as the fireball starts to erupt.
I took this at the maximum 140mm setting and macro to enable the leaf to stand out from the colours of the background, it has worked well from my point of view.
The touch of frost on the blades of grass as well as their sweeping shape and intermittent leaves all seem to come together in a gentle yet chilly image.
The condensation coupled with the colours and shapes seemed to complement the old and peeling window frame.
I am very pleased with the Raw and images at 100% are incredible.
Cirencester had it's Christmas light "switching on" event last night so thought I would try and grab a few night shots to see how the G10 performs at night, I am happy!
This couple had just got married and where having some photos taken in the Cloisters so I grabbed a couple of shots.
These 4 images are taken at the old gravel works that is currently being filled in and landscaped, I hope it will become a nature reserve but money drives people to destroy according to their needs.
I have enjoyed taking photographs here for many years and have used it as a testing ground for new equipment and new ideas - it will be missed by many!

The winding road and contrasting colours attracted me to this scene
The colours of leaves add to this image of the path and the next one below - true Autumn colours
