Peak District Re-visited

12th January 2012
Finally got out with the camera and after checking the weather forecast found that there was likely to be good weather in the Peak District. There was but it was very very windy making picture-taking very hazardous - the tripod almost went over a couple of times but the biggest problem was holding it steady so that the images stayed crisp and sharp.
I had just read an article by Pete Bridgwood about ensuring images were always sharp using hyperfocal focussing and infinity focussing - a new one on me! I always use hyperfocal focussing for my landscapes but its handy to have a brush-up on technique although the conditions were not perfect.
I find it difficult with my Sigma 10-20mm anyway as the live view image is not always clear - not like the Nikon 24-70mm which is incredible!
Hope you like the new images - first of them just uploaded.
