In no particular order, here are a few shots I’ve taken with my new Sony A7II. I’m very impressed with the dynamic range and resolution from this compact and capable camera.
Sgwd Henrhyd, Brecon Beacons. The one time I wanted overcast weather, the sun came out in all its splendour. Tough lighting conditions, made more difficult by selfie stick wielding tourists. Got there in the end. 27th September 2015.
Sgwd y Pannwr in the Brecon Beacons . Almost a year on from our trip to Sgwd Henrhyd, we were once again let down by the Welsh weather. The bright conditions resulted in areas with extremely high, or extremely low contrast, very difficult shooting conditions. 22nd September 2016.
Southwark sunset, an almost 180 degree view of London’s evolving skyline. 15th of May 2014.
A full 180 degree view of sunset over the Houses of Parliament. It took a few attempts to get this panorama, thanks to tourists prancing around with their phones, tablets and selfie sticks. 4th October 2014.
Tower of London poppies. This art installation was by British artists Paul Cummins and Tom Piper to mark the centenary of the first world war. Each of the 888,246 ceramic poppies represents a British life lost in the conflict. 5th November 2014.
Sunset from Bankside. The Thames foreshore provides some beautiful views of London during the blue hour. Being available and having ideal weather conditions makes it that little bit more challenging. 7th May 2016.
