Yorkshire Sculpture Park

Headed off up to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park for some photography and it rained!

The weather was dismal – drab grey sky and rain.

First stop was the YSP cafe for home cooked chips and a hummus & olive wrap, followed by scones with cream & jam…yummy!

I used my infrared converted Pentax *ist D and a 28mm f/2.8 lens for today’s photography. No tripod, flash or filters. I was lucky enough to catch the back end of the exhibition by Spanish artist Jaume Plensa. A few of his statues were still on display in the grounds, sadly I missed the indoor exhibition as that closed on the 22nd.

Pentax W60 Launch Cornwall

Pentax W60 Launch  Cornwall. Pentax organised a surf lesson and a spot of surfing at Newquay. It was the first time I’d been surfing – I nearly managed to stand up! The W60 held out well, being hit by a surf board and drowned on several occasions.
