Out and About: Kenilworth

I’m in the middle of a monthly project for my photography club at the moment and although I think I have one image which I believe would fulfill the criteria, I wanted to see if I could get any more. Any image submitted to the club for the monthly assignments has to be taken in that month and shown to be so in the Exif so although I had taken an image earlier in the year which would have been perfect I needed to go out to the site again to get another.

The location was in some fields not far from the town of Kenilworth, so fighting my way through the hordes of dog-walkers I went out there again. At the time I went in February there was only corn stubble across the field and the pattern of the planting really helped with the image. This time, only half the field had been harvested and I couldn’t quite get the angle that I required, but nevertheless I did get some images of which some are worth processing.

I went out with the Fujifilm X-E2 and the XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 zoom lens. I was more interested in the 18mm side of the zoom for this shoot as I wanted to get a broad view of the field and the background. Once I got to the location I realised (duh) that I should have brought the X-T1 with its flip screen at the back as part of my plan was to shoot at a low level. However, I managed to get some shots using the X-E2 on the floor and the following image was one of them.
