What a difference days make!

So, what’s the difference days make to landscape images? The above photograph is of Crawley Tower: a medieval Pele tower surrounded by fortified buildings overlooking Powburn in north Northumberland UK. I took the photograph on 26 February 2018. The lowering, early evening winter sunshine clearly brightens the scene.


Exposure: 1/200 sec at f/8.0

Exposure Bias: 1/3 EV (to compensate for shooting into bright light)

ISO Speed Rating: ISO 200

Focal Length: 89 mm (142 mm equivalent with x1.6 crop factor)

AND JUST A FEW DAYS LATER…the effects of the Beast from the East have transformed the landscape to provide yet another snow shot.


Crawley Tower contrasts


Exposure: 1/250 sec at f/11

Exposure Bias: 2/3 EV (prevents the snow exposing as too grey)

ISO Speed Rating: ISO 200

Focal Length: 135 mm (216 mm equivalent with x1.6 crop factor)

Post production: Converted to black and white; grain added; vignette added

Direct contrasts such as these provide welcome opportunities to explore visual variations.
