Pubs at Dusk

Inspired by a friend of mine who's been doing this in Scotland I went out last night with the NEX-6 to try taking photos of some of the local pubs in the twilight. It wasn't quite dark but it wasn't far off. Some came out rather well. Here's the best so far. Two more pubs to try.

Spring at Milton Hall #3 Reprised

You may remember that I took a photo of this gravestone in Milton Hall last month. I said at the time that it would have worked better with some side illumination to bring out the writing and today turned out to be the day so here it is again with the sun in just the right place.

Cambridge Boundary Run

I popped out for some milk on Sunday and found a small bunch of people applauding competitors in the Cambridge Boundary Run so I went back with my camera and took some photos.

Spring at Milton Hall #3

Nothing to do with spring at all but I've been meaning to take a photo of this gravestone in the grounds on Milton Hall for ages and it worked well in black and white. It would have worked better with some side illumination to bring out the writing mind you. Another day.

Spring at Milton Hall #2

The grounds on Milton Hall are carpeted with snowdrops and winter aconites. I was rather pleased with this photo of some aconites. Depth of field, bokeh, context: the whole works.
