Nikon D800E

Nikon D800E. A new camera takes a while to get used to, but this one is a joy to use after so much medium format. Of course the quality isn't as good as the Phase One camera/P45 that I'm used to; the files look like typical DSLR files but are much larger, so they'll print big.

Massive rain cloud

Almost cursed a massive rain cloud last night at Kimmeridge, but after it went over the
light was amazing for about 20 minutes, such drama in the sky. Love it! Slept in the car, freezing cold all night then woke at 4:20am to a frost. May is supposed to be a warm month isn't it?

Somerset Photography Workshop

I've been leading a two-day photography workshop around Somerset; pretty bad weather for tuition, but as far as creating moody images goes it's hard to beat. I managed to take a few hand-held pictures myself with the Sony NEX-7 - it has no mirror like DSLR's, so hand holding is less vulnerable to camera shake. This camera still surprises me quality-wise, I love it. Priddy Ponds is a great location on the top of the Mendip Hills, see more at

Great clouds and reflections at Priddy Ponds on Tuesday. I was tired and hungry but who cares when there are sights like this to see? Photography is so great when all the elements come together - food and rest can wait
