Very Briefly Uplifted

View Larger On Black

Made Explore No. 219 on 26th June - Thanks


Out for the first time in a long while since breaking my foot. It felt great to be shooting again and surprisingly 4:11 am never felt so good. ;-)


Shot with a polariser to get the best contrast and an ND4 grad to tame the sky. PP is limited to a little sharpening and removal of a telegraph pole in the background. I once did something similar with a rape field


The sky was like this for approx 3-4 minutes before relaxing to a grey haze. Really glad I made the effort this morning.


Just out of shot, against the hedges were stacks of beehives with some very sleepy bees hanging around the hive entrance like late night clubbers reluctant to leave.


BTW - The flowers are kinda hairy/fuzzy...its not over sharpening ;-) Borage
