Was hoping for rather better weather yesterday; patchy I think is the best way to describe it. Plenty of cloud but lacking in sunshine with just a few moments of decent, late afternoon, photo-action. Originally the plan was to go later to make use of the setting sun. Luckily a change of plan as by sunset the weather turned to rain.

A cycle-ride, camera in backpack, from Wallingford, through Cholsey and up to the North Unhill Bank via the Westfield Road. Then along the A417 to Aston Tirrold, on to South Moreton and back to Wallingford via the Hithercroft Road. Took about 3 hours all told.

Two photos today from the trip. The first benefiting from the polarizing filter, something woefully underused. The second image is from a long ridge, North Underhill Bank, with didcot Power Station on the far horizon. This is a HDR image from three exposures processed in Photomatrix Pro, hence the dramatic nature of the clouds. A little Topaz Adjust action has been applied to both.

More HDR images tomorrow.


  1. Cloudporn! Love the sky in the first and the perspective in the second…

    I rather like the first – viewed at full size the sheep have more of a presence and detail. I do seem to have a thing with clouds…
