Taken on my trusty old Olympus XA in strong early morning winter sun. I have posted this image here to show how well the XA's lens and meter copes with difficult lighting situations. This is effectively a snap taken on aperture priority and hand held. I think for about 30 s/h these little cameras are just incredible performers.

It has a good atmosphere about it.

Great lighting. The lichens on the seat just show how clean the air in Cornwall is!

Thanks chaps.


The old apple trees behind the seat are covered in lichens too - maybe I should get a pic of them :-)

Beautiful. However, I wonder how would it look it you tried to stand with the light in your back (trying to avoid any unwanted shadows) because the angle of the shot makes me think of how would a floating angel see the scene. I am aware that angels don't exist but the burst of the light looks like one of them was coming..) or maybe I am crazy..)

As mentioned in my intro this is a just snap to show what the XA's meter can do. I like the light coming in from top right and wouldn't change that if I was re-shooting for a serious image. The shadow would also be easy to avoid by a slight change in camera position. Fortunately the seat is in our small orchard so I can re shoot at any time - I must get back there with the Mamiya 7 !
