"into the mist"

Inspired by the wonderful British weather.


View On Black




This image will be part of an exhibition at the Arts Centre Washington, Tyne & Wear from December 6th 2011 till January 15th 2012.




Ashness jetty is a very popular spot at Derwentwater, near Keswick in the Lake District. When I arrived the night before it was too dark to shoot the jetty so I came back the next day.


As anyone who has ever been to the Lakes will know, it's not called the Lakes for nothing! However, if you check out everyone's description on flickr you'll notice that everyone say's "due to the rain"!! However, the rain comes in handy to fill the Lakes!


But seriously Mick & Dave gave me awesome directions to this spot! There is a car park behind this spot, mind the cattle grid! However, be prepared to wait in a line! I found another photog here and two fishermen!


The poor fishermen where getting a bit miffed having to wait for all these long exposures!! They needed the jetty to cast off! I was about to warn them about fishing hooks and seagulls, but as communicating was difficult for them I decided not to educate them! Instead I just joined in with their grunts!


Anyhow, it was eventually my turn so equipped with my broken umbrella (many thanks Mike Ashley ~ cheap crap you sell!) I set about trying to capture the wonderful....erm...misty and rainy view!


This was catptured using my new Hitech 10 stop filter, I went for a "dark rinse" as there was very little colour due to the poor light conditions. (Notice on flickr how many other photogs in the lakes say that!)


I was going to call this "slippery when wet" as there is a sign on this jetty saying just that!, just in case you're not able to work out that wood and water = slippery! Bloody Health & Safety!


So enjoy, and make sure to check out Mick & Dave's wicked photostreams!


Many thanks again lads for the tip off!
