September 2020 Activity

I started the month off with an early morning trip to Cleethorpes Country Park with the idea of capturing the park during sunrise. There was a slight change of plan when I spotted the local family of Swans near the island in the lake and decided to video them for a while. Well, that was the sunrise idea blown out of the water as they say.

The next idea for the month was to complete some of the local waymarked walks to seek out some good views for future landscape photography trips.

The first one completed was the Bradley Barnoldby Loop Walk which is just over five miles. The images below show that it was a bit of a wet walk, but it only rained for the last mile or so. Again, I got some notes from the walk that will lead me back soon.

A week later it was onto the Ludborough Links North ralk most of which is within the Lincolnshire Wolds AONB to see what I could find. The images below show the weather was much better and again I have some notes for return visits.

To give the old legs a breather, I took a short wander down to the seafront in Cleethorpes to see if I could capture an image of the sunrise.

Another trip close to home saw me venturing into the Weelsby Woods area of Grimsby for an early morning walk during sunrise.

Then came a bit of an experiment. Back in around 1990, I purchased a Centon 500mm Mirror Lens for £99.99. I have used it from time to time but not recently so I thought I would give it an outing and see how it performed. To keep things simple I took a short trip to the Humber estuary near Cleethorpes and used to the lens to capture the first image below. The second and third images were captured using a Canon 75-300mm Zoom and a Sigma 17-70mm respectfully.
