End Of The Rainbow

End Of The Rainbow Title: End Of The Rainbow
Location: Margaretting, Essex
Camera: Canon EOS 300D / Canon 18-55mm EF-S
Notes: Driving home form work on evening, I noticed the deeply forbidding clouds just as the sun came out and illuminated the golden yellow field of rape. The rainbow arced into the sky, and I had to shelter under an enormous umbrella to take my picture.

Pienza Hillside

Pienza Hillside Title: Pienza Hillside
Location: Pienza, Tuscany
Camera: Canon EOS 50E / Canon 100-300mm USM
Film: Kodakchrome 200
Notes: I spent a blisteringly hot week in Tuscany visiting a friend who was studying in Siena in June 2001. We hired a car and drove about to some of the remote towns and villages. These few lonely trees stood out on top of the hillside ridge and made a great addition to the scene. Strong lighting and a polarising filter helped to saturate the colours.
