First and Last Light
Yellow head
When taking photographs, I tend to favour the fading light of dusk or the early light of dawn. Dark streets framed by the pre-dawn deep blue sky is an especially effective combination. I have been known to get up absurdly early in the summer, like three in the morning for example, just to get the one shot I had an idea for.

Rain Street

I'm lucky in that the area where I live offers superb photo opportunities. Both the canal, the railway and the brutal ringroad flyover, pass through streets largely untouched since Victorian times, creating strange scenic possibilities.

They are superbly dramatic. I'm going to have a look at work, though, because I am not sure if my montior at home makes everything a degree darker than it ought to be.

Thanks. I'd be interested to know whether there is a difference between monitors.

Yep. I'm at work now. The pictures have slightly more detail in the foreground - only slightly, but it makes a difference. I think my work settings are better than my home ones.

How do you stop 'camera shake'? Are you using a tripod?

I generally brace myself against a wall and hope for the best.
