Autumn Afternoons

I don’t think there is much better light to shoot in than an autumn afternoon. Ideally in Yorkshire but obviously, I am biased.

The quality of light can be fantastic for a number hours and with a little wind pushing clouds across the sky, the landscape is painted and repainted in golden hues.

I was lucky to get out for a couple of hours last weekend to capture some of those moments.

I am guilty of falling in to the trap of using my wide lens almost exclusively for landscape and most garden work. The long lens doesn’t get many outings but I decided to challenge myself a bit more and try to use it to capture the landscape instead of wildlife.

I am happy with the results. It allows for compositions that you wouldn’t otherwise be able to make  by compressing the distance between features of the landscape and pulling all those far away details today.

It is always good to challenge yourself to work in a different way.
