Outdoor Discoveries

What originally was a news section for the rest of the website soon became a place for me to write about human-powered wanderings in the countryside. Photography inspires me to get out there, mostly on foot these days, though cycling got me started. Musings on the wider context of outdoor activity complete the picture, so I hope that there is something of interest in all that you find here. Thank you for coming!

A little something in monochrome

20th April 2010

The hazy conditions that pervaded while I mounted Moel Siabod on the way from Dolwyddelan to Capel Curig didn’t make photography an easy pursuit. However, I still had well lit photos though the haziness made me wonder how they’d come out in black and white. Regular readers might remember the colour versions of these from a previous posting but I thought that I’d share anyway. Maybe my approach to the world of monochrome should be more deliberate but, unless you try, you aren’t going to learn what works and what doesn’t. Then, you can imagine what results you might get. That might explain my trust in my ageing yet trusty Pentax K10D for image capturing duties: I have a good feel for what it does and it helps when attempting to translate the scene that’s in front of me into a photo.
