I was out with my PhotoBuddies at Abbey Park (last week) it was so bright and hot we decided to adjourn to the tea room for large ice creams. I did managed to get a few images though. It almost looks like the Coot is walking on snow, but it was a covering of duckweed on a pond in the Park.
I used some expired (2006) Ilford HP5+ for this shot and developed it in Kodak D76 1-1.
It’s taken most of the day for me to recover from last night, 5 pints of Flying Scotsman !!!! and a great evening of live music at a friends gig in town.
On these photo’s I used the Pentax SMC M 50mm f1.7 with a yellow filter, never been a great fan of 50mm lenses always prefered wider angle, but have seen some really good images on a few of the blogs I follow, it’s growing on me.
