Yorkshire Sculpture Park… Again

This weekend I returned to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, this time with some young family members in tow. Now that autumn has properly set in the leaves are turning, the colours are glorious and the park looks very different from when I saw it a couple of weeks ago.

This time I focussed on the autumn colours but couldn’t resist taking a few family photos too. Click the image below to see a slideshow of some of the images.

I had a fun evening at a village bonfire party this weekend. I wanted to photograph the fireworks with some light trails but knew that it would be tricky.

I did some research beforehand and went armed with my tripod. For the fireworks I put my camera on the tripod and set it to manual. For clarity I set the ISO to 100, the aperture to around F8 and I played around with shutter speeds of between 2.5 and 6 seconds.

While I took a few photos where the fireworks filled the frame I also tried to capture some of the atmosphere and other activities that were going on around the field. Perhaps one of these would be a better entry for the ‘Into the Light’ element of the Interpretations assignment?
