Photography: Black Country weekend photos

Lock keepers cottage, Walsall

I took this shot on Sunday of this lock keepers cottage on the Rushall canal. It looks very different in summer. The last time I was there was mid winter.

Five Ways bridge, Walsall

This shot of the Five Ways bridge is unusual. The elderberry tree is growing at the side of the canal.

My Nikon prefers something to focus on rather than just a landscape and so focusing on these horses made for a much better picture. This is the bridleway at Sandwell Valley Country Park.

The same applies here, but the bridleway going away from us gives the picture depth.

River Tame, Sandwell Valley

It’s quite overgrown now and it was hard to even see the river. In this picture, the tree gives the picture depth.

The horse riders share the bridleway with cyclists and walkers too. It was still a little cloudy when we took pictures here, but the light was good.

This was probably my best photo of the day. The light was really good and I have dark colours in the foreground and lighter in the background giving a sense of depth.

  1. Hi Mike, I enjoyed the Lock Keepers’ Cottage the most this week. The charm of the brick home and the inviting path bring me right into the picture!

    • Hi Carolyn,

      I have photographed that before, in the different seasons. It was a lot warmer on Sunday! Now summer is here, we can take a lot more photos although I still have to watch the weather. It’s really sunny today for the first time. No cloud at all! My camera isn’t used to so much light!
