Yesterday I had a day off. I didn’t have an internet connection for ninety percent of the time. After a wet start it was a grand day. I spent the best part of the afternoon repairing a bonnet catch for the lass staying next door. That’s her car bonnet or hood not the bonnet or hood on her head.
We are back from a couple of hours wandering the forest and the shores of Loch Morlich. It was bitter cold and I’d forgotten my gloves. In between the squally showers it was just about bearable. Old Pine………….I’ve had several goes at this rotten tree during the past month. I really hoped to crack the job this time. The bottom half is focus stacked then the top was stitched on in Photoshop. I shot it at f11. I’ll have another go at f3.5 and see if I can lose a bit of the distracting background.
Loch Morlich………This again is focus stacked and shot with a circular polariser. It is pretty much a waste of time bothering stacking as the Canon TS-E 24mm II is as sharp as sharp at f11. The DOF scale shows depth of field to be1m to infinite when focus is set to 3m. Crop away a bit of foreground and the result would be much the same.
I saw something today that I’ve never see before and that was a Dipper flying backwards and forwards over the surface of the Loch. It must have thought it was a Swallow.
That’s all for today.
