Clappersgate Bridge, The Lake District, UK. Fuji XT2, 10-24 lens. ISO100, 0.6″ at f/9.0. Polarizing filter.

This week I want to share a simple image. There is nothing fancy here in terms of post processing. There’s no trying to be clever. It’s just a nice Autumnal shot that I made last weekend in the Lake District.

It was shot using the Fuji XT2 at a place called Clappersgate Bridge, just outside Ambleside. The lens was the Fuji 10-24 which has really impressed me with its quality. I processed the image using Lightroom and I think it looks great at full resolution.

There are though a few points I would like to highlight about the image:

The colours look superb. The conversion was done using the Velvia film simulation in Lightroom. I did need to tone the saturation down a little as well as open the shadows, but overall this is exactly the colour rendition I wanted to achieve. Deep, rich, vibrant colours without needing to pump up the saturation. In short, it looks natural which is exactly what you want to achieve as a landscape photographer. The depth of field was front to back despite my low position. The image was only shot at f/9 and I focussed on the grassy bank just to the right of the bridge. When you zoom in you can see the leaves in the foreground are pin sharp as are the distant trees which can be seen under the bridge. I didn’t use a filter…
