Skelwith Bridge

Another image from the iPhone today, processed in Photoshop. This is Skelwith Bridge over the river Brathay just north-west of Ambleside and a favourite spot of ours for a morning coffee at Chesters, which is directly behind me in this shot.

The weather up here is variable. Raining one minute, sun trying to shine the next. And of course when it is feasible to take shots the sun disappears; and as soon as I start to drive, or we are in a ‘dead’ area for images, the sun chooses to shine. Typical!

About LensScaper

Hi - I'm a UK-based photographer who started out 45+ years ago as a lover of landscapes, inspired by my love of outdoor pursuits: skiing, walking and climbing. Now retired, I seldom leave home without a camera and I find images in unexpected places and from different genres. I work on the premise that Photography is Art and that creativity is dependent on the cultivation of 'A Seeing Eye'. I'm not averse to manipulating images to produce derivatives that may sometimes be far removed from the original.

    Hello Andy meant to send this yesterday but was running a workshop, giving a camera club talk near Reading in the evening and advising a lady and her husband who are coming to Africa with me and was worried by what her GP had told her about yellow fever jabs for over 60’s and so day rather ran away with me.

    Have you looked at the work of Chase Jarvis ? He has a saying “the best camera” —- is the one you have in your pocket ——- and is a great proponent of iPhon-ography as he calls it. I heard him talk once and he was really interesting.

    Regards Bob

    PS haven’t forgotten about PowerPoint let me get the next few days out of the way and I will suggest a date.
