How the light changes

Yesterday I paid Old Winchester Hill a visit - which I've been promising to do since August .

Apart from being 'rather cold and windy' , the views were wonderful as usual. We 'only' spent a couple of hours there (though I could easily have spent longer), but when I looked at what I had taken last night, I was amazed to see just how (and how quickly) the light changes, especially at this time of year, so I thought you'd like to see it too.









First two were taken with the Bigma by the way, and yes- I managed to use the monopod this time . The second two were taken with the 14-54mm lens.

It would be interesting to see what some of the lovely wide angle lenses that Ian brought along to Keyhaven would do!

I have sort of 'promised' Ellie that I would organise a trip next summer to this place - if anyone would be interested. This time of year, there isn't much around to photograph, except the views, sheep, occasional birds, as well as the usual birds of prey!

Nice series of shots, Thea

I did an experiment on the beach in France in the summer using a polariser. all taken within seconds of each other. I don't have them here at the moment, but I will dig them out later and post them here. The light can really change with this filter.

Re: How the light changes

A nice series of shots Thea, it's quite noticeable how quickly hte light changes at this time of year, as we found out when we last went to Keyhaven. It makes for some quite dramatic scenery.

Yes, I'll be up for a visit to Old Winchester Hill next year. It looks good, perhaps when some of the butterflies are around?
