… since I last played chess. Can’t say I was brilliant at it, but did enjoy the challenge. Came across this set while we were tidying up, and decided to set it up on the coffee table. But will I play again?
Not the statue by Antonio Canova, but the three iconic buildings that dominate the Pier Head in Liverpool, and represent the maritime history that the city is famous for. Three merged long exposure shots taken on my Sony camera rather than my ‘usual’ iPhone setup.
Met up with our 10 year old granddaughter today. Good opportunity to catch up after our week away, and also to try out the Moment 58mm iPhone lens converter in portrait mode. Love the perspective a ‘longer’ lens gives, and of course the ability of the iPhone XR to ‘adjust ‘ the effective depth of focus after the event.
It’s been a pretty mild winter so far – no snow here and a few clear days too, but it looks set to change with snow forecast later today, and for later in the week. Time to get the thermals out…
After a cloudy start to the morning, things brightened up as I drove through town, so I figured I could find some interesting detail in the local graveyard to set against the colourful sky. The wide angle (18mm) lens fitted to the iPhone allows for a more dramatic perspective.
Driving up to Doncaster today to see a relative in hospital, I decided to make a short detour to Lumsdale Falls on the edge of the Peak District. As seems usual each time I go there, it was raining, but this made for some nice highlights on the rocks. I took a few shots with my phone, but the Sony A7iii comes into it’s own with a subject like this.
Lumsdale Falls – Sony A7iii & 24-105mm
This afternoon saw me at The Roaches, the southern-most point of the Peak District National Park, and closest spot to us. Although cloud was forecast, there was just enough clear sky to make a decent sunset photo. I have a couple of good iPhone shots, but my Sony camera really excels in these conditions.
