Haynes is about nine miles or so south of Bedford and in fact consists of four different small villages or maybe large hamlets… Silver End, Northwood End, Church End, and West End (didn’t quite manage to get to West End… maybe another time).
Its a bit of a strange village in that it stretches across quite a considerable swathe of countryside (its about a 3.5/4 mile walk from one end to the other) yet is actually quite narrow.
I was a bit slow developing any real enthusiasm for this particular session, but I got there eventually. Ended up taking about 200+ shots (though the final edit left me with only about 70-odd!).
Both cameras performed reasonably well (provided I paid close attention to the position of the sun, which stupidly I sometimes failed to do) and overall the quality of the light was superb, enabling me to get some really vivid skies and rich colours.
One minor glitch was that somehow I’d inadvertently set the Canon to ISO 1600 which I didn’t discover till after I’d taken the first half-dozen or so shots. Irritating, as I’ve developed the habit of checking all settings before setting out on a session, so don’t quite know how that happened.
The complete Haynes set is here.
