Lights in a pub
Lights shining on the ceiling of The Monachty, a pub in Aberaeron, Ceredigion, west Wales; 24 Sept 2014.

Having walked a lot on a windy but fortunately dry day, we took a step into the unknown and lurched into The Monachty for coffee – and really very good cake.  Sitting  by the window, I saw photos in the passers by, but instead chatted to my wife – by far the most patient person I’ve ever met when it comes to my standing around pointing cameras at things; and I enjoyed the cake – and looked up.  And there on the ceiling were lights, source unseen, and looking good.  And so to high ISO, image stabilisation and spot metering.

Having the spotlight sharp anchors the shot.  And retaining the diffuse, pale and faintly green glow at the top helps it I think.

D700 with 70-300 Nikkor at 300mm; 6400 ISO.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    But… isn’t cake always good, especially after a long windy walk. 🙂
    Curious, was it traditional Welsh cakes? tesion lap, bara brith? or just cake in Wales?
    Oooh, and did you try Welsh cakes while you were there too. 😀

      No, cake is ALWAYS good, fullstop! Its an article of faith thing really but, unlike some other such articles, its born out by 100% firm evidence. But not too firm, p’raps best to have your evidence victoria spongy …

      Cake in Wales, but elsewhere we did get stuck into Welsh cakes – and we found a very nice place in New Quay, the Mariners Restaurant, which does tasty fish & chips, and a wonderful Chunky Steak Pie – oh those chunks, positively wading about they were, in gravy to die for! 🙂

This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
