Autumn Falls

Weybridge

 

Last week I shared a picture of Coulson’s Weir on the Wey Navigation, Weybridge.  This is another shot of the same place, taken on the same day but a couple of hours later.  The light has become warmer and a cluster of oak leaves has fallen giving me some seasonal foreground. In fact, I like this one better than the first shot.  I think the person on the bridge helps the composition, although I know a few very good landscapers who absolutely hate seeing people in their shots.  I suppose this is not exactly a wild place and so a bit of human interest seems fitting. Which image do you prefer?  And what are your views on figures in landscapes?

I realise I have been wittering on about the Wey Navigation recently but haven’t really explained what it is.  I did a few posts about it last year, but that is a long time ago in blog-land!  A longer post on the Navigation is in the pipeline, plus one on technique, and one on selling your images online. But first my incredibly slow internet has to finish downloading OS X Mavericks.  So far, 8 hours and not even close to the middle of the progress bar!  Rant over.

Coulson’s weir

Weybridge

 

What a stunning day we had today.  The light this morning was so clear; how could I resist?  This is Coulson’s Weir on the Wey Navigation in Weybridge, Surrey.  Continuing the theme of this week, there is also a tiny starburst on the lip of the falls.  Can you see it?  If you saw Monday’s post, you know what aperture I used for this shot. 😉
