An Autumn Visit To Craig Gwladys Country Park

Autumn is a wonderful time for photography. The colours, the textures, the mushrooms, the leaves and the light all come together to give us a chance to take photos of natures beauty. Craig Gwladys was the place I visited last week and found the red mushrooms, how things changed over the course of five days, with the red mushrooms disappearing seemingly over just five days. We did find a few though!

Today I used the Fujifilm X-T3 with the Viltrox 13mm F/1.4 along with the Viltrox 56mm F/1.4 lenses. They performed really well, and I’m really happy with the images. Shooting at F/1.4 just gives the images a different (more full-frame) look. The images were edited in Darktable with my “Autumnal” Style, which just gently adjusts the look of the scene by softening the greens and adding a bit more orange and brown to colours, making them pop more.

Hopefully you’ll agree, they’re a nice collection of autumnal images. I really enjoyed the day, and its good to be feeling better and getting back into enjoying getting out without the pain!

As always, I really appreciated comments, likes and if you could subscribe, that would be brilliant. The year is nearing its end for out-and-about photography for me and the group, but hopefully I’ll be sharing lots of great images soon!

Until next time, thank you very much for viewing.

  1. That is indeed a very nice series of photos Mark, and your Autumnal DT style fits perfectly with it. You’ve also managed to apply the lenses differently than what you would normally do, such as macro at 13mm and landscape at 56mm, and it’s very successful !

    1. Thanks Marc, yes, I like to try and get different looks to images as you know, I just think it mixes it up a bit with the lenses. The DT style isn’t too different from the actual colours, just tames the greens and adds a bit of brown/orange in certain colours to give them some pop, subtle but effective I think.
