Roadside near Youlgrave, Derbyshire Peak District.
ISO 200 1/500 f/8 handheld, 75mm
Colour version enhanced using various luminosity masks, then converted to B&W using Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 (modified Dark Sepia preset)

3. Blue Hour at St. Philip’s

8:44pm, almost full moon
Nikon D800E / Zeiss Distagon T*2.8/21 ZF.2
single exposure ISO 100 0.5″ f/8
One of my first shots with the new Zeiss – bracketed the shot, but D800E dynamic range is amazing so I didn’t bother with a blend.
