North Circular Road
Another cold day and I’m out again working at finding urban landscapes. An image here cropped from the original Phase One RAW file then processed using the Capture One software. Applying on camera filtration in the form of Lee ND grads would have been very difficult here if not impossible because of the various structures so I made sure that I held the details in the highlights for the sky then used the Capture One controls to pull out more shadow detail.
And I struggle with poor circulation in my hands so cameras outdoors in winter can prove difficult. the most practical solution I’ve come across is to carry rechargeable handwarmers. They make all the difference.

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.
