Park portraits

When I needed to go out for my rehabilitation exercise today my wife came along and we carried out an impromptu photo shoot in the park.

I used the D500 with the 50mm f1.8G (75mm equivalent on the D500) and it did a good job of capturing the photos I wanted.

A touch of fill flash from the SB700 helped.

Avebury stones

On an impulse and after looking at the moody sky, once my shopping was completed I thought I would drive to Avebury to photograph the stones hopefully without too many visitors about.

I started at the Trees of Wisdom still used by the Druids during their ceremonies before walking along the ridge to capture some images of the stones.

I only spent about an hour there before heading home but there were not many visitors about some a little time and effort allowed me to get photos without people.

Meandering in Moreton

Sheila and I went to Moreton-in-Marsh today so she could look around the market and I could get my daily walking exercise and grab some photos.
It was the weekly Tue market with a real mix of stalls and shoppers including coaches bringing visiting pensioners in from other areas to enjoy the day.
I managed to get a mix of photos including some in a garden close to the market.

I called into Clayhill car park this afternoon as I had a couple of hours free and just as I arrived, my good friend Rob arrived and we headed over to the sailing lake to walk, talk and grab some photos.

It was yet another dull and overcast afternoon but we still took the opportunity to do what we love best.........take photos.

No flash unit today but still the D500+300mm f4 lens delivered images I am happy with.
