Ancient Timbers

By Stewy  
After venturing out last week for the first time in ages, a second trip out was called for.

This was taken on the salt marshes at Thornham and was the first time I had used last year's Christmas present, a 10 stop filter. I had hoped for a bit more movement from the clouds but it has at least "smoothed out" the water, which was moving about quite a bit due to a fairly strong wind. This was a 30 second exposure.

Apart from getting used to how to use the filter I also learned the importance of using the tripod! The images obtained on this trip were so much sharper than the ones I got last week which were all hand held. (I've been getting lazy and tired of lugging the extra weight around. I have a back problem which that doesn't help! Fortunately there is a car park less than 10 yards from where this was taken!!

Anyway, thanks for looking and any comments welcome.
