From the Jane Austen House we moved on to Bolderwood in the New Forest. Click any of the pictures to see them all full size.
A Walk in Farnham Park
Here’s another image taken some months ago from my window with the longer zoom (see last post). This one was not converted to Acros in post; these are the colors out of the camera.
While I mostly shoot with a Fujifilm X-T4, I still have my X-T3 with a longish zoom (55 – 200mm, or about 85-300 full frame equivalent) usually mounted on it. When I’m traveling I can therefore carry both cameras go all the way from 16 wide to 200 tele without switching lenses. Now and then I take a few random shots with the long lens in between travels and even less often I remember to unload the chip to Capture One and see if there’s anything on it. Here’s one such from months ago, taken from my window on a frosty morning and converted to Fuji Acros.
As part of a workshop in alternative cameras I took a few shots with an old Canon Powershot A570 which had it’s infrared filter removed and a piece of orange gel taped over the front of the lens. This yielded some interest color IR effects. Click any image to see them all enlarged.
I’ve shot this tree before. It looks different every season.
Elephant in the Woods
What a difference a few weeks make. Here’s a version I posted a month ago (https://islerweb.com/2023/04/20/treelines/)
Poor Tom’s a-cold
William Shakespeare – King Lear Act 3 Scene 4 the blasted heath
Tom’s a-cold,– O, do de, do de, do de. Bless thee from whirlwinds, star-blasting, and taking! Do poor Tom some charity, whom the foul fiend vexes: there could I have him now,–and there,–and there again, and there.
Taking the Long View
This visit to Caesar’s Camp we struck out in a different direction and got different views.

Blue and Green
Kentish Train Ride
From Canterbury we took a train to Margate in the Isle of Thanet. These are some moody landscapes I took from the train window.
Tree Portrait, Street Canvas
I couldn’t quite get the angle I wanted for this one because of the shape of the courtyard, the elevations and the presence of lots of tourists. But, as with many other urban tree ‘portraits’ I’ve shown in the past, I was taken by the wall behind as a canvas for this solitary tree.
