Wow…. Having a go with my wide angle lens (10mm on a D7000) has made the kiln look tiny.
This was a good burn with the kiln running as it should. The three chimneys were equally spaced and all smoking. I was finished by 4 in the afternoon, rather then by 6.30 which is what normally happens. I’ll put this down to getting the starting fires going quickly, plus drier wood, and less wind.
I did get a proper picture, despite the smoke…
This week I was making charcoal in a local woodland. With time on my hands I thought it would be good to try some self portraits for practise. I should remember though that the wind is likely to change…. Some people might say this is an improvement.
On Monday I attempted to make charcoal using an oil drum I’ve been working on for a bit. It seemed to do what it should do, but it’ll be Monday before I find out the results.
It’s a chilly, dark evening and I’ve been sorting out some pictures for a display for my volunteer group. Summer means making charcoal. It’s a long day, smelly but it doesn’t really matter as you’re out in the countryside making the most of what nature has to offer. This is our kiln in action.
