The Winking Man

The Winking Man on Ramshaw Rocks, Staffordshire is a unique natural gritstone feature. I've been wanting to see if this shot was possible for some time, so I'm glad to have finally given it a go.


It's a composite of 7x120 second sub frames @ISO 200/28mm/f2.8 (Zeiss Distagon) Canon 500D.


The face was lit up by cars passing on the nearby A53.


The camera was set up on the floor in order to get the right angle with polaris in the eye.
