Slip Road – Phase One along the A13

Slip Road

So here I go again. Another unusual situation to place the camera in and see what I’m able to get out of it.

I’ve spent this evening driving along the A13 towards Tilbury. I managed to get locked into a car park near on the Rainham Marshes, the local police station was closed so I was getting ready to dial the emergency services when a man from the nearby refuge site turned up with a key & let me out. I didn’t fancy a 20 mile walk or trying to hitch. I was pulling off the main road at different junctions, parking & then walking to see what oddness I could find.

Living in such a large metropolitan area as London has meant that urban landscapes make up a large proportion of my own landscape material as well as offering locations for the teaching of workshops on the Shadows and Light programme.

Phase One in the cold

Still getting familiar with this new camera & every time I put it to use I delight in having medium format once again. It did well on this day as at -3C the re-chargeable batteries held up well. Alex & Sav at the Flash Centre were right when they said that the cold didn’t effect the camera adversely. I came across this horse by chance & as I had no treats he wasn’t prepared to spend too long near me. It was a good opportunity to try the camera in shutter priority mode whilst shooting across the light to keep the sky as rich as possible.
