This blog post is a little different. Its early winter and true to form for December one of the first winter storm blew through on Saturday. It merely kissed the south east of England with a frigid blast and a fair douse of rain. Other parts of the country received a solid storm. As the weekend looked to be a bit of a washout photographically I set myself a mini challenge to go and see what I could find with my simplest and cheapest camera and lens. Thus, I set off with dog in tow (ok, the dog took me out for a walk on Saturday and Sunday) with my Nikon D3300 and the basic kit lens (a Nikon 18-55mm AF-P VR) to see what I could find.
To make it a bit more interesting I decided to stick with using a semi wide angle 35mm field of view (24mm on the lens . I didn’t quite stick with that. Mainly that was by accident as the zoom ring tends to rotate a bit but these were all taken with equivalent focal lengths of 30-45mm so a fairly tight grouping.
A bit different from my regular pure wildlife approach but I did get a bit of a kick from working with the damp winter overcast light to get a bit of a feel for the typical time of year we have here in the UK.
