I have been meaning to take a picture of Stone Henge from a distance for quite some time now. On the way to my holiday I noticed a great view driving down the A303, and a gate to pull into.
So on Thursday night on my way home from work I decided to give it a try.
I don't use my 200mm-500mm lens very often so this was my chance to try it out. I am used to shooting at quite slow speeds however, with this lens that isn't a good idea, add to this the large lorries travelling along the A303 and you are left with quite a shakey set up! (Even with my trusty Manfrotto!)
So anyway, I arrived set up the camera took a bit of a walk up and down until I got the henge against the sky just right, and what started as a bit of an orange smudge delivered this spectacular sky. It didn't last but still I think it looks great!
I have also taken a portrait version, posted alongside this one, I am testing the processing between two different screens, so V2 is processed in Nottingham on my usual CRT screen, the V3 is processed in Wiltshire on an LCD screen. Would value any comments.
