Taken this evening on Baslow Edge. I'm about an hour away and looking through the window at 7pm the sky was dramatic and the sun was out so I assumed a sunset would occur. I shot off over to Derbyshire and was greeted with this stormy sky (lightning in the distant hills). The sun had vanished so I had to make do with dull clouds. I took a couple of shots before the rain started. As I headed back I got drenched.
It's a 90 second exposure using the Lee Filters Big Stopper and the Olympus OM-D in LIVETIME mode.

You've produced a very weird effect with this long exposure. It works really well.

So often the story - but still a powerful image.

This I like Pete, decent pastels.

A bit flicker`ish I know but would you mind adding this to the 4/3 group Smile Smile

Explaining how you set up the shot and the live time mode.

I`m now a beginner with this camera Smile

Am I right in thinking this is the same rock you've shot a few years back ?

I'm standing in front of it as I type this, was working in the area so thought I'd have a wonder along the edge for a reccie. Fingers crossed for a decent sunset later on Wink
