What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Five years ago it was the fishing boat ‘Ellie Jane’ at East Runton near Cromer in Norfolk.

‘Ellie Jane’ has featured on this blog before but I make no excuses for including another image from one of my favourite spots on our coastline…

I’ve started tinkering with Capture One Express for Fujifilm and this is the first image I’ve edited with it…

It’s too early to tell if I’m going to get on with the software or not but one thing I definitely don’t like is the lack of any way to add a watermark to images! (I used GraphicConverter 11 to do that here…)

Throwback Thursday… Fellows Morton & Clayton Ltd/The Canalhouse

What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

10 years ago it was The Canalhouse, a pub occupying the lower floors of the former canal museum in Nottingham. I believe it’s the only canalside pub in Britain where the canal itself (The Beeston Canal) actually enters the building!

Fellows Morton & Clayton Ltd was, for much of the early 20th century, the largest and best-known canal transportation company in England. They went into liquidation in 1948 but the name lives on in a smaller pub next door to The Canalhouse.

Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day… Crich Memorial Tower

Another image taken with my thingyfy Pinhole Pro S ‘lens’.

An image from last year’s Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day. This is Crich Stand, a memorial tower dedicated to the memory of the soldiers from the Sherwood Foresters Regiment who died in World War I and World War II*.

In the current situation I’m not sure I’ll get chance to shoot any pinhole images on WPPD (which is today) this year…

*The memorial is also dedicated to those who died serving in the Sherwood Foresters Regiment from 1945 to 1970, the Worcestershire and Sherwood Foresters Regiment from 1970 to 2007 and the Mercian Regiment since 2007.

Single frame… Moon

I spent a fun hour last night photographing the moon (and giving a phone tutorial to Rachel on the same thing…)

I’d found a cheap 500mm mirror lens in the cupboard and with the aid of a T2 mount and a Nikon-Fuji adapter managed to mount it on my X-T2 giving me the equivalent of a 750mm lens.

This lens seems to be able to focus beyond infinity though and I had trouble getting a correctly focussed image… this one is the best out of the 59 shots I took!

Single frame… Derwent reflections

An image from a recent ‘Photography Friday’ walk with Rachel along the banks of the River Derwent near Calver in the Peak District.

This is the point at which Stoke Brook flows into the river, home to Brook Lampreys, a primitive, eel-like fish with a sucker for a mouth… We didn’t see any though.

Here’s hoping that our jaunts (and the world in general) return to normal soon…
