Coniston Boathouse

This boathouse on the SW shore of Coniston Water is the boathouse that was features in Arthur Ransome childrens novel Swallows and Amazons.
I had to wait a long time for a gap in the clouds to allow the sunlight to light up the boathouse and tree.
I used a 6 stop ND filter to slow the shutter speed to blur the water and clouds to give the peaceful look.
The Olympus Hi-Res modes takes four exposures to create a 50 megapixel image, it also means the 3 second exposure was like a 12 second exposure, helping to blur the water and clouds even more.

Red Deer hind

 I went out for my annual October outing to Hay Bridge to try and get a decent photo of the elusive Red Deer stags. The stags remained elusive but this hind was quite obliging in fact she nearly walked into me.
