After a very wet Friday, the afterglow of daylight fading to night made up for a very grey and dismal day…
Even though I opened up the ISO of this shot to 1600, there was enough light at 7.50pm to take this at a fast shutter speed. After that it was a case of giving the image more contast in Photoshop to get that interesting “silhouette look”. The “Shadows & Hi-lights” menu came into use here too.
We’ve had a lovely day in the company of Caroline, Fabrice and their 3 young children who had lots of fun with our two. We had met Caroline and her children in the alps last July whilst we were on holiday there for 2 weeks. They live not too far away from us, so we’ve tried to arrange a meal together for a little while. When you have little ones, that is not always easy.
As we’ve been busy eating and chatting all day, I took this photo of our street as they were leaving. Taken with the little (temperamental) Nikon, this is a similar view to the blizzard shot taken on the 15th of January and in the opposite direction to yesterdays photo.
