A walk in the woods

These are a few photos from a walk in the woods near my house last Saturday (I still haven’t used up the film from the walk!). I went during the afternoon and by the time I was on my way back, the light was at its best as it was getting towards the end of the day, although I’m not sure I’ve really done it  justice. (These were all taken with my DSLR.)

On the water shots below (and the one above), I used a new variable ND filter, not something I’ve used before, so that was a bit of an experiment. I’m fairly happy as the ND was easy to use and definitely made a big difference, although don’t think the focus was quite right, and next time I’d probably try to get a bit more of the background in. But not too bad for half an hour spent fiddling. The picture on the left has a 13 second exposure, while the one on the right is only 3.2, which shows how much additional time you can expose for when you vary the ND effect. This will be great for long daytime exposures in future.
