So when can you catch the Amersham Old Town Market with no cars and no people about? The answer is very rarely indeed. Patience is definitely a photographic virtue as it took Nigel an hour to carefully capture images of sections at one of the busiest junctions in this Buckinghamshire town.
This 135 degree wide panoramic photograph taken in 3 rows of 9 images and stitched together to feature one the oldest towns along the Chiltern Hills in Buckinghamshire. The church was built in the 13th century and the market developed rapidly as the town of Amersham is only 15 miles from High Wycombe and Aylesbury.
The angle of the sun was critical, enough light was needed to shine down the narrow street to illuminate the building, but not to cast a shadow across the Market hall. It's a very deceiving image. Old Amersham is a lovely shopping area with lots of independent shops and eateries. It is a fine example of olde worlde and modern.
