Fujifilm DL-270 Zoom, Fujifilm Super-EBC Fujinon 35-70mm at 70mm, Fuji Superia 400

I’m not over fond of zoom lens compact/point & shoot cameras but the Fujifilm DL-270 Zoom seems fairly capable. Not bad for a fiver!

Another image from the Nikon TW20 today…

Great Northern Basin on the Cromford Canal at Langley Mill in Derbyshire. I say ‘Cromford Canal’ but the basin was originally part of the mostly abandoned Nottingham Canal that passed under what is now the A608 road just to the right of The Great Northern pub, visible in the background.

Monochrome Monday… Cobweb Bridge, Sheffield

I’ve mentioned my fondness for twin lens (rather than zoom lens) 35mm compact camera before and this roll of Kosmo Foto Mono film has been lurking in one, the Nikon TW20, for a while.

Opened in 2002 the Cobweb Bridge was designed by Sheffield City Council’s Structures Section and carries the Five Weirs Walk under the Wicker Arches railway viaduct while linking one bank of the River Don to the other. The web of steel support wires give the bridge its name. Just visible overhead are the large steel spiders that conceal the lighting.

Another image from North Norfolk and given the unseasonably soggy May we’re having I thought I’d choose one captured during an unseasonably warm October!

The six-acre walled garden at Holkham Hall is an ongoing restoration project and a wonderful place to while away a slumberous afternoon.
