Beech Tree Roots, Padley Gorge

Posted by
Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 31 March 2015 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

A b&w photo of one of the many amazing beech trees in the beautiful Padley Gorge which is in the east of the Peak District not far from my home here in the North of England.

Photographically I thought I'd thought I'd try something a bit different from my usual wide angle lens - I used a Nikon 85mm prime lens at f1.4 for this shot

NIKON D800 1/1600 second F/1.4 ISO 100 85 mm (35mm equiv.)

Like what you see here and are interested in photographic composition?.....the blog section of my website now has a complete set of 5 articles covering my personal approach to the subject: Ian Bramham Photography - Blog

Lovely tree, great angle. Indeed. changing to a completely different lens and just sticking with it throughout the day can give some amazing results, and that f/1.4 lens sounds like a beauty!
