Goring-on-Thames Field Trip

In order to break the relentless posts on scripts, I thought I would post a few images from our short trip to Goring today. 

Wiki and other sources tell us that Goring-on-Thames and its neighbour Streatley are both very old villages indeed. Due to their unique location at the intersection of three of the most ancient routes in Britain, they have been inhabited continuously for at least 5,000 years.

There is evidence that Old Stone Age man travelled from Europe through Goring and Streatley along the Ridgeway before Britain was separated from mainland Europe and became an island after the last Ice Age.

The Church of England parish church of Saint Thomas of Canterbury is Norman, built early in the 12th century. The bell-stage of St. Thomas's bell tower was added in the 15th century and has a ring of eight bells, one of which dates from 1290. The rood screen is carved from wood taken from HMS Thunderer (1783), one of Nelson's fleet at Trafalgar.

All the shots where taken with my 5D3 and my 24-105mm F/4L lens: and all of them, other than the two internal images, where taken with Magic Lantern Dual-ISO switched on, for a 3Ev boost to the dynamic range coverage. Exposure was set using ML ETTR.

The indoor shots were taken using my auto focus and exposure bracketing script. The images were composed of four focus sets and four exposure sets, giving a total of 16 images for each shot.
