My Camera Club had the run of the outside area at Snibston Discovery Park, Coalville, particularly the old coalmine area, closed in 1983, having been opened in 1832, for a shoot one evening recently.
The final shot in this series ties the barn and the colliery together in that I noticed this reflection as I walked by the barn in the window I drew your attention to on Wednesday.
I have turned the reflection to B&W in the hope that it stands out more than it did in the original image.
If you have children or Grandchildren and are in the area this really is a fun and educational place to take them, their website is here.
Earlier this week I upgraded my camera body from my elderly Olympus E300 to the E450. I could have got something considerably more advanced but I don't need video, my G10 does that, and I know I will not use all the "bells and whistles" on the more advanced models. Fortunately everything else, lenses etc., can be used except the batteries and I had my first proper shoot with it on Wednesday at Calke Abbey, a National Trust house not far from us. Seems o.k., just need to learn where things are on the menus now.
