Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 20 September 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

A long exposure photo at dusk of one of the radar stations at Honfleur on the River Seine at the approaches to the docks at Le Havre.

You can see the Pont de Normandie in the background.

An Open Invitation:

On Tuesday 12 October I'll be giving a talk to North Cheshire Photographic Society about my photos: NCPS Syllabus

For the first hour I'll be showing lots of my own photos using a digital projector and discussing the work of photographers like our own Hugo Poon, and John Leech who first showed me that photography could be an art form, as well as the work of iconic photographers like Michael Kenna

In the final 30 minutes of the talk I'm going to be discussing basic tips on photographic composition.

I realise that most of you live a long way away but anyone who would like to come will be made very welcome!

NIKON D700 30 seconds F/16.0 ISO 200 21 mm (35mm equiv.)
