Trip hazard!

I’ve gone for something a little different today. We are still moored up in Bentley Bridge. By opening up the aperture, the depth of field (the amount in focus) becomes very small. This way, the subject of the photograph can be made to stand out, no matter how “busy” the background may be. As it was early evening, and the light was beginning to fade, to get this shot of a mooring ring I needed to increase the ISO.Whilst these are useful to tie a boat up, they are often not in the right place! It all depends on the length of your boat and the gaps between the rings. Here, for a change, they are suitably spaced for our boat, which is just visible on the right.
