Cramond, May 2017

We go to Cramond fairly often. It’s a lovely place to take photographs. I’m looking forward to autumn when the trees will be changing. I wonder if there’s ever much snow there in winter?

Here’s a selection of the photographs from this day. I’m starting to get the hang of batch editing, which is both quicker and more accurate – it’s so satisfying to scroll through the finished images and see the colours match across similar pictures!

The way into the woods along the river is past the boat club. Very picturesque.

A few of the trees overhang the river like this. I like the shapes in their branches.

The roots of this tree are incredible. You can’t get a feel of just how big this is.

Here’s my children climbing the roots for scale! Even in person you don’t realise just how big it is until you see climbers getting smaller and smaller without reaching the trunk…

A swan swimming under overhanging trees. Sadly the water isn’t still enough for a clear reflection.

I really must get some neutral density filters so I can take proper long exposures… (I didn’t have a tripod with me either, but my camera has a handy wifi feature that allows me to connect it to my phone, and one use is to use it as a remote trigger).

It’s so peaceful here.
