Another long exposure image, this time Cromwell’s Bridge near Clitheroe. The water poured over my wellies as I stood still in the middle of the river so as not to introduce camera shake on my 98 seconds exposure. The river constantly flowed around my tripod legs so I was amazed to get such a sharp result. The sky was drab but the reflections and the glass like water are beautiful isolating the rock and making it look super sharp.
Believe it or not it is possible to walk across the bridge. I didn’t dare.
I like the feeling when you come home from shooting and you aren’t really sure if you captured anything to be proud of until viewed in full on a big screen, and then you know you did well. Using a ND 1000 filter is a bit like shooting back with film, I mean its a lot of guess work and the results and clear immediately. Also each shot needs thinking about, in detail its not just a case of spewing out rapid fire, not when time between shots can easily be five or six minutes
