The beauty that is the English countryside.

Most landscape photographers would probably cringe at shooting at anything but f8 or even smaller apertures. I spotted this scene from a dual carriageway and thankfully there was a side road which let me come off and explore it. I wanted to convey it in a softer, almost painterly manor and so shot the entire set on my Leica M9 using the 50mm f0.95 Noctilux wide open. As there was too much light, I had to use a B&W ND filter to allow me to shoot at f0.95.

These images are available on my Photoshelter site in the Places section.

  1. Hi Ed – lovely work!

    F8? I’ve been going through a rather long phase of shooting landscapes at 5.6 on a 400m lens!
