I get up early most days, it’s one of the few advantages of being a boarder line insomniac. It meansI have plenty of time to cycle the 18 km’s to work before the local town is awake or have even thought about waking up.
I’m lucky in that at least nearly a half of my route takes me along the river path where there are lots of things I can record and the weather is never the same.
This Picture was taken at around 04.30 in the morning everything was totally quiet even the ducks were sleeping when I rolled to a stop by this old stone quay.
It was a foggy start that day so there was plenty of atmosphere I took this low shot which a mate said looked like the cover of some new Scandinavian Crime novel. Anyway just to show the difference I took a similar shot next day without fog and a different aperture setting.

Here is my last shot from Worldwide Pinhole day. This time I really got some “Lens flare”, if you can call a little hole a lens. As you can see the sun shone at an angle to the camera and there is some internal reflections going on. Gave a strange effect I wasn’t expecting.
WWPHD was a wonderful sunny one. I was down to 6-7 second exposure for this shot. I must learn to tilt the camera up a bit as I cut the top of the bridge and have a little to much foreground. But it’s pinhole so you live and learn to put up with small framing mistakes.

I thought this upturned boat made a nice pointer to the bridge in the distance. It also adds some foreground interest and depth to the shot.
The wonderful Ypsilon Bridge in Drammen my local town.
I helps to remember your SD cards when going for a walk. This time I did just that.
This is a hip shot . I left the crazy angle in.I think it lends a little to the dynamic of the shot. I tried to straighten the image it just looked too ordinary.
