Arcachon. HDR shot. May 2013.
Two different versions of the same view of St Michael’s mount with Sheep at Dusk. One of the pictures is focused on the skies and one on the sheep and the grass. I ended up keeping both as I couldn’t choose between the two. HDR was purely and simply the only way for me to... Continue Reading →
A wee HDR shot for a perfect late morning October light. The entrance is grand and fort-like. Yet, this is a fortified farm, not a castle. Classic midday backlighting shot of the "keep". The farm is located near Mantes La Jolie and La Roche Guyon, an hour west of Paris. October 2013

More Poppy field pictures from the Somme HDR view, and menacing clouds ... Non HDR, at the exact same place... amazing poppies Thousands and thousands of them... With a colourfade filter

A great classic, I hadn't taken pictures of the Arch of Triumph (Arc de Triomphe) since at least 1987 or 8. This is an HDR shot made of 3 bracketed shots taken in a fraction of a second; dodging the passing cars was a bit of a challenge. The lens is my fixed manual Nikkor... Continue Reading →
