A domed church spotted in a gap between two office blocks in London

Weekly Photo: Seen in London

In a recent trip to London, actually while making our way across the city to Hyde Park, we spotted this picture.

Here’s an interesting mix of old and new architecture all reflected in the glass walls of two building through a gap between the two.

Autumn Trees

Golden autumn leaves on the trees catching the sunset.

Well last week’s storm made short work of those golden leaves. When I visited the lake this morning it is mainly bare branches. Here’s a different composition of the same autumn colours catching the sunset and reflected in the lake.

At least it leaves something warm to look at as the weather cools and we drop into what the weather forecasters are telling us will be a very cold winter.

 St James Lake Reflections in Brackley

 Having a pretty little lake a few minutes walk from home is a mixed blessing.

On the one hand it’s a great place to take a walk to get a bit of exercise and blow away the stresses of the day. Taking a camera just adds to the pleasure as it is a pretty spot. On the other hand it starts to take over the photographic efforts. Some days it is much easier to take the camera for a walk around the lake when I should be making a bit more effort to get some more adventurous pictures.

The shot above is St James Lake in Brackley, Northamptonshire. It is a nice little spot wedged in between the local Tesco and the A422 trunk road. Featuring a few geese of various kinds, the lake also plays host to the occasional swan visitors and normally has a grey heron around.

St James Lake is actually a flood protection lake designed to protect the lower parts of the town. In fact, a few years ago, it was totally flooded out after heavy rains.

Photography

A good range of tones and some bold shapes will often make a good black and white shot. This shot is a black and white HDR photo generated from a single RAW and finished in Gimp. The HDR processing just adds a bit of detail to the shot.
