While traveling in Cornwall, UK a few months ago I was trying out and doing a lot of testing with the Olympus OMD E-M1 camera. At one point we were crossing a river on a ferry and I saw these anchored ships and sailboat. I thought it would be interesting to shoot with a long lens compressing the background in the shot. It looked in the end best in Black and White.
I love animals. They have not a care in the world. They are here to share their love with us and to show us how to have fun. This photo should say it all. There is one way to live and that is full steam ahead. I shot a ton of images of these two dogs playing. Just like I shot a ton of the Arctic foxes playing this past summer in Svalbard. No matter where you go you will see animals having a good time. I guess I’ll have to pick up a stick and run a little and see who wants to chase me.
This is another from the Cornwall, UK series. This was a major fishing harbor and the boats would come in and off load and prepare to go back out. The light and color was perfect. I liked the chains, the netting and the way the guys were working.
I still have a lot of nice images to share from my week in Cornwall, UK. Today’s image was made in Charleston Harbour in Cornwall. I made it with the Olympus OMD E-M1. I used art mode for BW that allowed me to shoot RAW as well as have a JPEG in BW as shown. This makes using the camera a lot of fun. I saw these guys sitting on the bench and just had to make a photo of them. Black and White makes the image really nice.
While in Cornwall, UK last week I saw many cool sites as well as many castles. This castle is St. Michael’s Mount in the village of Marazion. At low tide you can walk and drive out the island. At hight tide you need to take a boat. Pretty cool and medieval.
Ahh, so many good images from my week shooting in Cornwall. Today is a shot made along the coastline. This is the Godrevy Lighthouse. I did a large number of exposures at this location so you may see more in the future. This was made with an Olympus EM-1 and 12-40 pro lens.
I have been enjoying my time in the Cornwall area of England immensely. I have been shooting almost non-stop and have seen some great sunrises and sunsets and a lot of things in between. Yesterday morning we were shooting the sunrise at a little harbor and we had a rain shower then a double rainbow. How lucky was that? It’s been one of those rainbow kind of weeks.
Seems I am in a sunset these week. I am in Cornwall and shooting a lot of images in a lot of places. This image was made today at sunset. Spent a good 2 hours shooting this lighthouse with various angles and shutter speeds. This is a good idea of why I am having so much fun here. Shot with an Olympus OMD EM-1.
After a very hectic week in Germany I flew to London and eventually ended up in the Cornwall area. Lovely area and I have been shooting for several days. On my first evening here within a few minutes I was presented with this sunset. I knew I’d have a great shoot for the rest of the week.
