20th May...Shepherds Crag Climbing

A great day out with Paddy doing the classic climbs Little Chamonix and Troutdale Pinnacle

20th May......Ashness Bridge, Borrowdale

After a great day climbing on Shepherds Crag I took the opportunity to grab a couple of classic shots of Ashness Bridge as the sun went down.

The contrast between the foreground and the distant hills was quite high so I used 2 ND grads to try and balance things out.
An exposure of 0.8 secs at f7.1  was as close as I could get with the exposure and with a small amount of tilt on the superb Canon TS24mm lens to take care of the depth of field all I had to do was press the shutter.

7th squirrels

Today I had the privilege of taking some wildlife images with one of the countrys' top wildlife photographers and getting some great tips along the way.  It was quite an eye opener when it turned out I'd taken about 200 images (most of which were rubbish) and he'd only pressed the shutter about 10 times!!

3rd May.....Wasdale

Being a bank holiday the weather was true to form and was a mix of sun, rain and gales, even a touch of sleat on the summits!!!
This can sometimes mean the shots can be more interesting as the clouds and sunlight combine to give some lovely contrast on the mountains...
