338/365 - Multitude of Errors

1. The weather was forecast to be crystal clear skies this evening, which didn't turn out to be quite true.

 

2. The built in intervalometer on my D7000 stopped after just a few images (again) for some unknown reason, I need to look into that.

 

3. Someone called the police who thought we were stealing from boats! I was using my Petzl head torch to light the boathouse in the foreground (which also didn't work well, I'll take a speedlite next time).

 

We were honoured by the presence of 5 police officers and 3 police vehicles.

 

They were really nice once they realised what I'd been doing and one of them was a keen photographer which helped!

 

I plan to go back to this location and hopefully get this right and give the local constabulary a quick call first to let them know that I'll be there!

    It looks like a perfect shot to me! I like the varying colors in the sky. And thank you for the laugh about the police escort!

    Stunning! Love the exposure gap, looks like a load of flying '!'s or even footsteps
