Iceland with my D700& 24mm f1.4 / 50mm f1.4

Last year I had the most tiring but amazing experience, two days in Iceland, action packed, with my Nikon D700.  It was December and knew it would be freezing so made the decision to only take two lenses as I didn’t want to spend time changing lenses in the cold.  The 24mm f1.4 was a must with Iceland’s epic scenery and no other lens could capture like this lens would.  The 50mm f1.4 came along too but most of the time my fingers were too numb and incapable of changing the lens.  So the 24mm f1.4 became my go to lens for this mini trip, deciding that I’d rather have the whole landscape captured than smaller vignettes.

I have to say a massive thank you to my husband’s sister and brother-in-law for inviting us on this whirlwind of a trip.  Iceland is certainly a location I would love to go back to; perhaps to photograph the Icelandic horse – now that would truly be a bucket list project.

Sneak PeekFaye & Ed marry at Great Barn, Rolvenden

 Faye & Ed’s wedding at The Great Barn, Rolvenden.  What can I say! I’m actually pretty speechless.  Faye spent two years and more planning and collecting items for her wedding.  If that wasn’t enough she also made macrame backdrops and giant dream-catchers to decorate the barn and surrounding grounds.  Not one element was left to its own devise…there was thought behind every detail.  Such a beautiful wedding in every way, from the decor to family and friends.  Can’t wait to share more.  The talented team involved:

Autumn Movement

I cried over beautiful things knowing no beautiful thing lasts

The field of cornflower yellow is a scarf at the neck of the copper
sunburned woman, the mother of the year, the taker of seeds

The northwest wind comes and the yellow is torn full of holes,
new beautiful things come in the first spit of snow on the northwest wind,
and the old things go, not one lasts

‘Autumn Movement’ by Carl Sandburg

One of my favourite things about living in England is the change in seasons.  We are so lucky to have four very distinct changes to our countryside and Autumn has to be my favourite with all its golden leaves and the mauve tones in the cool air as winter approaches.

Everything about this shoot was inspired by the location, its movement, delicacy and colour palette.
