Trying out the new 3LT Winston and Lee Filters Seven5

I just tried out my new tripod and my Lee Filters Seven5 filters a little this morning. The weather was not that awesome (just as usual) and not very inspiring. I don't mind grey skies that much, but it was a pretty uninteresting grey sky, with not much definition. 

So yeah, not exactly my best shots ever, and not the most interesting location either and I've shot similar shots before, but whatever. Most of them with the Seven5 filters.

Stormy October winds in August...

There is something obviously going on with the environment. Things are happening around the globe and in my part of it we've had a month (July) with unnaturally high temperatures. Usually we have a day or two of warm weather and then colder again, but nearly a whole month with around (and over) +30°C is not normal. And now it's gone from that to October-ish weather (the temperature is not as low as in October though) with stormy winds and rain. It's cool in one way of course, since summer is generally speaking the worst time of year for photography, because of the harsh sun, many times cloud free and hazy skies, and high temperature.

Anyways, I like the winds since it makes the ocean more interesting for photography. And I took some shots of it yesterday (again). I have to add that ever since I went for full frame and got all new Lee Filters, it has opened new possibilities to shoot more even in day light. Buying a set of filters from this brand is quite an investment, but they are very good and well worth it in the end. Just don't drop them...

Not enough photography

Haven't done that much photography lately. Been too hot, and especially too hot at work which has put me off doing anything special in the evenings or even the weekends. Basically, I don't like summer that much and I long for autumn, with fresher air, better light and less heat. It's gonna be awesome when I can put on a jacket without the risk of dying from a heat stroke.

Anyhow, took a couple of shots last night and here's one of them.
