Day #3641Title: Sunset Across The Rooftops
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I hate the short days this time of year, but at least I noticed this spectacular sunset happening this afternoon. Unfortunately, there wasn’t enough time to go anywhere more picturesque to make the image, so I stuck my head out of the bedroom window! Thank goodness the Winter Solstice is approaching and the days will begin to draw out again soon.

Location: Shenfield, Essex
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM

Day #3320

Day #3320Title: Peeling In Pink
Location: Long Stratton, Norfolk
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes: I had to go to Norwich today but had a bit of time either side of my appointment to do a spot of geocaching in some of the villages I passed along the way. The longest walk was around Long Stratton, where I encountered this rather appealing door to a barn. Not sure if this is where the keep the lady cows, but it was a curious shade of pink!

Day #3293Title: Cherry Blossom Flare
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / Lensbaby Scout / Fisheye Optic 12mm f/4
Notes: I snagged a bargain on eBay the other day – a Lensbaby Scout to fit my EOS 5DMkIII and 12mm Fisheye Optic, for about a fifth of the cost to buy new. It arrived in the post today, so I had a bit of fun playing with my pink LED tree. While Canon’s 8-15mm Fisheye strives to minimize internal flare, the Lensbaby optic goes all out to embrace it. Of course, you get a different sort of picture, but that’s the point. Some examples from 2013, 2014 and 2015 show you what great results I got. I loved the Canon lens to bits, but couldn’t justify keeping it for the amount of time I used it. However, this Lensbaby optic can be used on my 5D for almost-circular fisheye results, akin to the Canon at 8mm (you could fake it easily enough with a black mask). But when used on my Panasonic Micro 4/3rds bodies (the GH3 and GX7) with my Composer Pro, it will produce results much like the full frame fisheye effect of the Canon at 15mm. A double win, for just over fifty quid! And since you can’t get much more distorted than a fisheye lens, it makes a perfect shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #26 – Distorted.
