Well I never quite made it out anywhere this weekend so I went searching through the hard drive to see if I could find anything to have another go at processing. This is a shot I took back in 2009 at West Bay, Dorset.
The first shot of the year, I managed to peel myself off the sofa. Took a trip down to Devon to have a look at the Day Mark Tower. Cool structure and it turned out to be slightly larger then I had imagined (not that you can tell from this shot). Arrived found my composition & there was lots of billowing cloud overhead. By time I had got everything set up the clouds overhead had vanished & there was absolutely nothing on the horizon behind me. I had intended this to be my test shot so that I could gauge the exposure, but as it turned out this was the only shot I managed to grab before the moment had passed. Packed it all up & drove back to Bristol. Still I enjoyed being back out on a photography mission!
I went for a walk across the levels by Glastonbury Tor and found a river which made quite an interesting foreground. So I ignored all that and stuck on me 70-200mm (cant remember the last time it came out of the bag) & snapped a shot of the top of the Tor. I'd intended processing this as a b&w, but I ended up quite liking it in colour.
A shot of the church of St Michel de Rupe at Brentor, West Devon. I've been thinking about visiting this location for nearly a year which in fact is how long its been since I've been out shooting in the UK. Its one of those locations that has one obvious shot. However when I set it up I decided that I wasn't so keen on it, therefore I've ended up with this shot of the top of the tor.
This is the third shot I've taken at Ersfjordbotn. Its become a bit of an unintentional study, but its such a stunning place. We were hoping to catch the sunlight on the mountains on the right, but we got here a little late. Probably due to the fact that I managed to drive the car into a ditch & we had to get recovered by some extremely friendly locals (Thanks!). As I already have a shot of the mountains catching the light it probably worked out quite well for me.
