Divine Crossing

Just surfing my archives and looking at some of the pictures collecting dust.

This is one from a walk in Shoreham last september.

This was a 79 second exposure using my B+W ND110 screw in filter.

This bridge was very busy and not very wide so everytime someone came along they had to step over my tripod or I had to pick it up and move it, everyone was very understanding whilst I took a couple of shots.

I have thousands and thousands of pictures just sitting on my hard drive and you gotta think what am I going to do with all these pictures collecting dust.

 

Anyway it's started snowing now so in the morning it should be a lovely blanket of fluffy stuff for me to photograph, or in reality I will wake up and go sod it and put the t.v on with a nice warm drink lol.

Only tomorrow will tell :)

►Chose the pre-set filter with high structure for the detail in the stonework
