Handy location to have on your doorstep. Is that the official line? Congrats on the HM!
Yes, it's just outside the old Greenwich Observatory. A good place to check the accuracy of the GPS data. This is what my camera recorded at the time of the shot

Latitude 51,28.6196N
Longitude 0,0.0788W

If you put the coordinates into Google Map you'll see how far out the camera's location was. The picture was a shot of "The Avenue" just south of the Observatory.

Interesting. Keeps my attention. Iím interested to know your technique.
I half filled a large glass jug with water. I backlit it with a flash. I spun the water with a small battery operated hand whisk. I removed the whisk and took the picture straight away.

It's a single shot. I was lucky that the traffic stopped for just the right 30 seconds.

Darren .. i absolutely loved this in voting .. and am so glad you got in the top 5 ..
its brilliant ..
and i was interested to know the lens you used for this shot .. Canon EF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 IS USM .. can you be quite far away from the insects and zoom in .??.
with the macro lenses i have used .. canon and olympus .. i have to be very close to the insect .. i'd love the ability to be a lot further away .. i dont think the mirrorless omd em1 Mk2 lenses have that ability .. :(

and just realized the breakdown of votes and Sara's comment .. very disappointing seeing those low votes .. as this really is exceptional .. :)


Thank you, Iím pleased you liked the picture.

I was about a metre away if I recall correctly. I think I had an extension tube on my lens. This is how Iím able to get a fairly large magnification without getting too close.
