Autumn in Nidderdale 3

The third and final image from Sunday’s walk; the shimmering reflection of Autumn colours in the pond set perfectly in the aptly named Fishpond Wood.

We’d set off with the intention of visiting Guisecliff Tarn, in Guisecliff Woods, a second attempt after failing to find it exactly one year ago. Back then we took too long wandering along the river Nidd, captured by the stunning colours (below). This time Skrike’s Wood and Fishpond Wood, blocked our path.

Next week we’ll make a 3rd attempt!

Autumn in Nidderdale 2

Sunday’s journey to Nidderdale in the Yorkshire Dales proved to be rich pickings on the photography front with the second Autumn panoramic view, this time of Skrikes Wood.

In the past I’ve struggled with woodland scenes, which is slightly annoying given that they’re perhaps my favourite landscape, but on this occasion, concentrating on the hillock covered in the red Autumn fall and the composition of the tree trunks (rather than trying fit everything in) I came away reasonably content that I’d captured the feeling I had when I first looked through the opening in the dry stone wall. Printed big I think it could prove quite effective.

Shooting Notes 

3 stitched images taken with the Sony RX1rII at f22 for big depth of field, at iso100, on a tripod, post processed in Lightroom and Elements.

 

 

Autumn in Nidderdale – With the Sony RX1rII

I’ve be far too busy lately and nearly missed this year’s Autumn colours, but today, travelling through the Dales, we found a perfect view of Nidderdale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.  When the scene looks this good photography becomes simple 🙂
