Taken with an Olympus E-620 at Castlerigg stone circle in Cumbria. This location is always a favourite with tourists and photographers, so it pays to get there nice and early in the morning or late in the evening. We got there early in the morning and managed to grab a few shots before the hordes … Continue reading MMX: Stone Circle
This image was taken in Cumbria at Blea Tarn in May on a landscape photography holiday. The clouds were beginning to gather and there was rain in the air. There was a break in the clouds and I just got the patch of light on the far side of the tarn as it skipped across … Continue reading MMX: Tarn and Clouds
This image was also taken at the edge of Bassenthwaite Lake with an Olympus E-620. These small yellow flowers were forcing themselves through the stones and gravel of the lake edge and the cream coloured rocks and sparse grass gave a nice backdrop for them. I slightly softened the image and put a vignette around … Continue reading MMX: Rocks and Flowers

The light just happened to be right in providing contrast and form to the building and so I used the E-620 and 14-42 … Continue reading MMX: Attingham
Janette and I got back late last night from our week's holiday on the Amalfi coast. The hotel was lovely overlooking the sea on three sides and the weather was blisteringly hot. A few days soaking up the sun was interspersed with jaunts to Herculaneum, Sorrento, Pompeii and a climb up mount Vesuvius. Along with … Continue reading Back from Italy
This is from the 4/3 Rumours website, a conversation had by a Russian Journalist with Mr Akira Watanabe of the Olympus DSLR Product Planning dept.It is a google translation from Russian to English hence the strange grammar.“There is nothing sensational on that front: yes, the DSLR system is also important for us, we don't forget … Continue reading Not ‘one beautiful system’?
