Not To Little And Not To Much

f my wanders around the forest, I had walked this path many a time and just happened to glance to my right this one time to see this small amount of water cascading over the edge, so decided I would come back when the conditions were right for capturing it. Thing with waterfalls is they are either a small trickle due to lack of water or a massive torrent due to heavy amounts of rain. So I have been watching how much rain we have been having lately, so it rained last night again so I thought there would be a good chance that it would be flowing nicely, not a   torrent but a nice steady flow that would make for a good composition and a pleasing image, and I was not disappointed. I visited another waterfall in the forest that is quite well hidden which I have photographed before which was only a small trickle last time and this was flowing nicely as well. Only down side was I found out I had a split in my Muck Boots Wellies so ended up with a very wet foot, but a small price to pay for getting the image.

Trying Something Different

So the NDH Hamsterley Forest TT was on, last Sunday I like my Sigma camera as the images I can get with it are excellent but I do find the weight off it can become very hard on my arms after a while especially with being a Magnesium Alloy body coupled with a good lens the weight can became, well heavy, we have been buying our youngest son the entry level Nikon D3200, with the standard kit lens for his school projects and that fact he is interested in photography as well, so I decided to test the camera with the standard lens out at the mountain bike TT , and I was surprised how well it performed and the quality of the images it produced with the standard kits lens these are just a few of the images I took with the Nikon D3200.

Nikon D3200 Lens 18 – 55, F3.5 – 5.6.
