There will probably be a few ‘Out and Abouts’ in Berkswell this year, as I am taking part if a project by the viewfinder.club called ‘The Walk’. The challenge is to do the same shortish walk – two miles or so – many times a year, recording the changes that you see, and trying to come up with original photographs along the way.
We awoke this morning to a light smattering of snow and so I thought that it would be a good opportunity to take my first pictures of the project. I knew that the fields and paths would be very wet and boggy after all the rain we have had, so I donned walking boots and gaiters. It was very boggy underfoot. The going was quite hard in places and there was a very cold wind blasting across the top of the hill as I ascended.
I think that I have managed to get one or two photographs that will be included in the eventual book I will do.
I used my Nikon D800 with a 50mm f/1.8 lens.
