A pot of gold at the end of April…

These are a the best of a few photographs I’ve taken over the past couple of weeks.
This first image of a lily I took using the flash on my Nikon D3100. I don’t often use the flash as it isn’t great however as it was quite dark in the living room where my flowers were, I need to in order to capture the detail of the stigma and stamen. I took the shot on Aperture priority mode, 1/60, ƒ5.6 ISO 400.

I managed this shot of the rainbow, purely by chance! Grabbed my camera and fiddled with the settings and hoped for the best. It was such a bright and beautiful rainbow, it stretched the whole way across the sky and you could see most of the colours, I’ve never seen anything like it before!
Manual Mode 1/60, ƒ5.6, ISO200.


These last three pictures were taken down by the Lancaster canal again, but in the evening when my friend Kelly and I went for a walk after spending a day in the Library, revising. Wasn’t sure how they would look once I got them onto my laptop screen however I was quite pleased how the red/orange light from the street lamps looked in comparison to the darkness. Although I had the ISO high the image doesn’t look too grainy.
Shutter Priority, 1/13 ƒ5.6, ISO1600.
