Another Night Shoot

Didcot Chimneys

For Some time i have been driving around the area looking at the un-missable didcot power station chimneys and thinking to myself, somehow they will make a great photo.

Well i'm not sure about  great photo, but i think tonight i took a fairly decent photo, this was taken just outside the power station over the railway bridge.



let me know what you think.

The Speed of Memory

Looking SD cards for my DSLR camera, i thought i would try an upgrade.

The best place to buy these cards has to eBay by far, if you look at the high street retailers such as Jessops, they charge a high premium, but on eBay you can get the for a quarter of the price.

I use an SDHC card class 10 rated at 30 mbps transfer speed, this was good enough until i saw the SDHX extreme pro that was also a class 10 but with a transfer speed of 95mbps.

I'll try this out this weekend hopefully, and should see some improved camera performance when shooting in burst mode.

An A2 Deal

Today I got one of those deal cloud offers for an A2 sized print for £8, Normally worth £44.

So I thought I would give it a try and see what the quality looks like on both the canvas A2 print and the photo I have taken with my new DSLR camera.


The photo I submitted was an Under exposed Macro shot of a flower in the back barged (See above).

The Family seemed to think this was the best option (and a bit of a gamble) to try the deal for £8.

I'll let you know what it looks like when it arrives.

Night Photo

One of the shots that I have been thinking about for a while is a motion blur shot of a road, here is a shot I took over the A34 just outside of Abingdon.


The shot is with a slow shutter speed, however there seems to be some glare on the lens, that I couldn't see when composing the shot, but seems to be visible in the final shot,

I think I will have to try this again!
