The Annual Worldwide Photo Walk has now passed and the Northwich walk took place yesterday. We only had a small group turn up, but the rain held off (just) and we had a good walk from Northwich town centre along the canal to the Anderton Boat lift. The weather wasn’t ideal for photos, an overcast bright sky making landscape shots tricky and there was a bit a bit of a breeze which made close ups of the flowers and insects a little tricky too, but it there were still opportunities and I snapped away with my 11-18mm wide angle lens to try and get some reasonable shots.
Here are are my favourite shots from the walk that I took. I have tweaked them in Adobe Lightroom, which is my software of choice for photo editing, and due to the flat lighting we had, black and white enabled me to push settings around a bit and make some slightly more dynamic looking images. Nothing award winning, but at least I got something out of the day.
Overall it was a good afternoon. I met some good people, enthusiastic about photography. I got out with my camera, which is something I don’t get a lot of time to do at the moment. I had a nice pint of Guinness which is always a bonus.
As I only moved to Northwich in February this year, I am still finding out about what photographic opportunities there are in the area, but I’m hoping to organise some more photo walks through out the year so keep an eye on this web site for more info.
