Twelve images for twelve months

To round out 2014 I thought it would be nice to share an image taken in each month of the year. I’ve tried to stick to photos I’ve not previously posted for the most part. These are all taken around West Yorkshire, with the exception of August’s photo which was shot in Grassington in North Yorkshire.

January

From the folly

 Apertureƒ/5.6  CameraFinePix X100  Focal length23mm  ISO640  Shutter speed1/80s 

The first image is of Roundhay park in Leeds.

February

War Memorial

 Apertureƒ/8  CameraX-E1  Focal length18mm  ISO250  Shutter speed1/100s 

The war memorial in Mytholmroyd. This year was the centenary of World War 1.

March

Daisy Bank in the Fog

 Apertureƒ/11  CameraX-E1  Focal length230mm  ISO200  Shutter speed1/800s 

Daisy Bank in Mytholmroyd, shrouded in thick fog.

April

Whitens Clough

 Apertureƒ/1  CameraX-E1  Focal length50mm  ISO200  Shutter speed1/420s 

The far end of Whitens Clough reservoir captured with my Samyang fisheye. I went to Copenhagen in April if you’d like to see some images from further afield.

May

Bluebell Path

 Apertureƒ/2  CameraX-E1  Focal length50mm  ISO320  Shutter speed1/125s 

The glorious bluebell display in Red Acre Wood, captured with my Zhongyi Lens Turbo + Pentax 50mm f2.

June

Amazing bicycle fish

 Apertureƒ/8  CameraX-E1  Focal length18mm  ISO200  Shutter speed1/340s 

It’s hard to post an image from June and not include one from the fabulous Handmade Parade.

July

Common Blue Damselfly

 Apertureƒ/8  CameraX-E1  Focal length60mm  ISO1600  Shutter speed1/500s 

I spied this little fellow while walking in the grounds of Harewood House, near Leeds. It was tempting to post a Tour de France image for July, but I’m feeling a little ‘Le Tour’ fatigue at the moment, so I’ve decided to go with this nature shot instead! Have a look at my Yellow Bicycle Project if you’d like to reminisce about Yorkshire hosting the Grand Depart.

August

Cheeky Robin

 Apertureƒ/2.8  CameraX-E1  Focal length60mm  ISO200  Shutter speed1/420s 

This inquisitive fellow got close enough for me to get some nice shots with my 60mm prime.

September

One less brick in the wall

 Apertureƒ/8  CameraX-E1  Focal length18mm  ISO320  Shutter speed1/200s 

There seem to be fewer bricks in this wall on each subsequent visit. This ruined old house is high up on the hillside above Mytholmroyd.

October

Locks and Letters

 Apertureƒ/5.6  CameraX-E1  Focal length27mm  ISO640  Shutter speed1/200s 

A detail of an old factory door in Hebden Bridge, former home to a metal spinning company.

November

Little toadstools

 Apertureƒ/8  CameraX-E1  Focal length60mm  ISO1600  Shutter speed1/125s 

These little toadstools are growing from the top of a bollard by the canal in Hebden Bridge. I’ve not been able to identify them, any experts out there like to help me out?

December

Frosty Hebden

 Apertureƒ/5.6  CameraX-E1  Focal length27mm  ISO200  Shutter speed1/340s 

We had such a mild, wet winter last year, it’s nice to be able to round out 2014 with a shot taken on a cold frosty day. Hopefully we’ll get some snow soon.

Thank you to all my readers and those who’ve kindly bought prints from Etsy and the Light Priority Shop. Sales will resume in January if you’d like to help support my work. I hope you all have a fantastic winter holiday and new year. I’m looking forward to sharing more images with you in 2015!
