Autumn Morning Swinley Forest

~click to see larger~

Finally it’s that time of year as autumn ever so gently makes its presence felt. Colder, crisper mornings and the landscape caressed with early morning mist.

If you are lucky, then the sun will make an appearance. Low slanting sun if I am being picky. Checking the weather forecast last thing at night and first thing in the morning now becomes second nature.

At this time of year I seem to spend a good deal of time gazing out of the car window as the landscape rushes past. Surreptitious glances as I travel past “my wood” on the way to work.

This morning was no different and I was parking the car before I had even thought about it. I usually have a camera with me…sadly I had forgotten my tripod. Still in for a penny…oh and 15 minutes to find something worthwhile. Nothing like pressure.

The thought occurred to me as I looked at the webs littering the pine trees…I am so glad I am not potential spider food – how does anything survive!

[Photographed with a Fuji XT1 55-200mm @ 120mm F7.1 1/640 sec. Early morning light and mist meant that the sun was doubly filtered.

I had no hesitation in pointing my camera straight at it, relying on the superb dynamic range of the Fuji to cope with extreme range of light.

This is just a single unfiltered image and the rendering of the soft light in the background to the spiders webs in the front is just wonderful]

Bath Family Portraits – Rich, Julia and Cerys http://guyaubertin.com/bath-family-portraits-rich-julia-cerys.htm http://guyaubertin.com/bath-family-portraits-rich-julia-cerys.htm#comments Mon, 08 Sep 2014 10:04:06 +0000 http://guyaubertin.com/?p=18591 Truly there is nothing so infectious as the gurgling laughter of a baby. That honest and warm chuckle that seems to come from the very tips of their toes. You just can't help but smile and laugh in return. As Cerys pulled back my hands to see my eyes and my repeated "peep-po" the laughter came again.

Truly there is nothing so infectious as the gurgling laughter of a baby. That honest and warm chuckle that seems to come from the very tips of their toes. You just can’t help but smile and laugh in return. As Cerys pulled back my hands to see my eyes and my repeated “peep-po” the laughter came again. Everything was of interest: my face, what was under the carpet…my camera. Everything was chewed and tasted. It appears that wooden giraffes are especially yum.

When it all gets too much, well time for a sleep, mid photo shoot. Quite right. And what better place to do it then in the arms of your loving parents. Gently rocked by the warm winds of summers last gasp and the slowly turning leaves of the beeches in the Royal Crescent. What a wonderful moment and what a privilege to photograph.

Winners of my July print give away http://guyaubertin.com/winners-of-my-july-print-give-away.htm http://guyaubertin.com/winners-of-my-july-print-give-away.htm#comments Thu, 24 Jul 2014 10:12:22 +0000 http://guyaubertin.com/?p=18270 Did you enter my free print give away? Find out if you have won a landscape print of your choice! Thank you very much to everyone who entered.

As a thank you for all the support for my photography from customers and followers on social media,  I ran a competition on my Facebook page. The prize was to give away 2 mounted and signed 18×12 inch images from my portfolio. All you had to do was let me know what your favourite holiday location was!

July-winners

 

I was quite overwhelmed by the response with 191 entries in 24 hours or so. Unsurprisingly Scotland seemed to be the most popular holiday location – along with lots of other places that gave me severe itchy feet! I downloaded all the comments from the post, gave each a number and then the winners were chosen completely at random using an online random number generator.

 

2014-07-24_10-15-42

The winners are: Sally Lea and Caz Lorenzo! Huge congratulations to them and I will be getting in touch via Facebook Messenger so keep an eye on your inbox. My message will contain instructions of what to do next. (Prizes must be claimed within 72 hours. If they are not then I will chose another random number.)

If you didn’t win, well look out for my next competition which will be in later in the autumn. Details will be published on my Facebook page as well as being emailed to all customers. Don’t forget there is 30% off all my landscape prints until the end of August!

Thank you very much to all those who entered, as well as your continued support and I look forward to seeing what prints are chosen by Sally and Caz.

I wasn’t sure what to expect to be honest. Photographing dogs being groomed sounded very interesting and…very wet! Add in 40 of them and well, I leave your imagination to fill in the blanks!! Aly and Sage had arranged for a dog wash at the wonderful Wag N Wash in Camberley to raise money for charity. One of Sage’s favourite vets, Fiona, passed away and this seemed like the ideal way to celebrate her life, raise some cash and have a lot of fun.

When my daughter first came home from hospital and we undertook the dreaded first bath, she looked at us with and expression of “do you have any idea what you are doing.” Much soothing and clucking noises followed. Mainly for us I think.

And that is just what this was like! Over a few hours dogs form the small (very) to the big (huge!) were washed, shampooed, clucked and fussed over. Just like children. Some dogs loved it. Some dogs were erm..backed into a corner. Just like children! It was a wonderful and uplifting thing to see and photograph

Thank you Edinburgh!

Thousands of women and men wearing brightly decorated bras were walking on sunshine, as they completed their Power Walking challenges at The MoonWalk Scotland 2014. These amazing people set off from Edinburgh’s Inverleith Park at Midnight on Saturday 7th June, pounding the streets to raise money and awareness for breast cancer charity Walk the Walk. Over half a million pounds had been raised before even one step had been taken!

An incredibly wet day made for an exceptionally difficult course as the team of 60 from Walk the Walk walked from London to Brighton. Mud mud and more mud.  No one should belittle the achievement of those who didn\’t quite get there this time. No one should underestimate the sheer bloody determination of those who did make it. Huge congratulations to you all
