As you can imagine it’s a great place to walk, with a multitude of circular routes to choose from and real variety of scenery – woodland, canals, lakes, meadows and rivers. And of course it presents tons of lovely photographic opportunities. During today’s walk we met many other dog walkers but also lots of people out and about with their cameras attracted by fresh snowfall, clear blue skies and the threat of a thaw within 24 hours.
I didn’t end up taking many photos, as I was simply enjoying the walk, watching Ferb’s highly comical run – his back legs seem so much longer than the front ones and he lollops clumsily along but somehow at high speed. When I got back and looked at my shots I decided to have a go at thinking square again – admittedly I didn’t shoot them with this intention but I’ll allow it as another useful exercise. (If you don’t know what on earth I’m talking about you need to look back at my last two posts).
I thought the images looked a bit flat and monotone so I experimented with some black and white conversion as well as the square cropping. I like the results but am not blown away. Looking forward to more walks over the coming weeks and more photo opportunities.
I’ve written about the Northwich Flashes before – I was shocked to see it was 4 years ago almost to the day. Click here to read what I thought back then – apologies that the pictures aren’t there – I think Blogger ate them as I couldn’t have deleted them as I wouldn’t even know where they go I’ve posted them! I’m going to root out some photos I’ve taken in the last 4 years and post them.
