The other day I took delivery of a Nikon PC-E 24mm tilt shift lens, which I am looking forward to using to up the front-to-back-sharpness ante on some of my landscape work (keeping in mind that sharpness in search of a mission is not always a good thing). I’ve not had much time to get to know the lens and I am waiting for delivery of a high-quality Philips #000 screwdriver so I can make it fully landscape-useful by bringing tilt and shift onto the same axis.
I went out last evening and produced some technically very good images. But my, er, focus was far too much concentrated on the technical rather than the aesthetic. So, while I wait for the tools and the muse and the technology to come into balance, here’s an image from the same area that I made before my photographic life became that bit more complex.
This one is about light and emotion. It is taken from Seat Knott on the western edge of the Howgill Fells looking over the Lune Valley.
