This is Leicestershire

10th May 2016
I have moaned on many occasions about the Leicestershire landscape; it is riddled with electricity transmission towers and cables, liberally spattered with motorways and their intrusive furniture, huge warehouse sheds and if all that were not bad enough many of the fields are small, and bordered by tall scruffy hedges which block the view. Those areas are a complete nightmare for landscape photographers like myself.

That said I freely admit that elsewhere the mostly gently rolling landscape is a pleasure and I have decided to seek out those areas and make panoramas of the county that I have lived in all my life.

So here for a start is the first, a view from Warren Hills Road, east of the Bulls Head near Coalville. In the distant haze it is possible to make out Nottingham to the left and the Willoughby hills in the Vale of Belvoir right of centre.

The large size of the panorama caused Lightroom to fall over twice while strangely Photoshop had no problem and did the job quite quickly. Although hard to see at web size the detail in the image (at least until the haze takes over) is quite remarkable, but typical of Fuji lenses; in this case the 18-135 at 75mm (113mm at 35mm equivalent). Finished the file is 288mp so if anyone needs a panorama of Leicestershire printed 42’ x 5’ let me know!
