Bales of Hay

Day 2 of the B&W ND110 adventure and a good excuse to stop the car on the way home presented itself in the form of this glorious view across a farmers field.

 

I'm very much in the experimental phase of using this new B&W ND110 but each time I have used it I have gleened a little more information on how it works, how it works best and what it can and can't do. For example, it most certainly is a pain in the arse having to focus, add the ring, take the picture, remove the ring, re focus, add the filter and so on...

 

Despite that, it is starting to give me the kind of shots I have craved for a long time, although I still think moving water is a much better subject than moving clouds, especially when they don't move fast! It is one of the few times I actually wished it was windier...

 

In hindsight and because I was slightly rushed in to the shot taking, I could have used some different settings to get a better blur effect on the clouds including slightly higher iso and the aperture wasn't particular good. Live and learn.
