Barrow Bay Dusk

By sut68      
Headed up to the Lakes on Saturday evening with the intention of shooting this jetty at sunset then off up Catbells for sunrise [see earlier posts].

It was looking great for sunset with a nice high cloud formation over Derwentwater about 30 mins before sunset, but unfortunately this disappeared just at the wrong time and left clear skies overhead.

It was like spaghetti junction at this venue. Initially it was only me shooting. After a while a nice couple of blokes from the NE turned up [with their tripods in various states of collapse]. Then a nice couple from down South with their dogs ... and finally a couple from the Liverpool area [judging by the sound of their accents] decided to move on probably because of the congestion. Needless to say it was a case of trying not to trip over each other for the evening.

Best conditions [for me] came about 20 mins after the sun had slipped below the horizon.

Nicely composed Paul.
The congestion is one of the reasons I prefer winter for this spot.

Sounds worse than it was but I actually had a lady kneeling between my legs at this point and her husband didn't seem to mind Wink She had her D800 on a low tripod and I had to straddle her to get this one ... I'll stop there before I get into trouble with MrsS Wink

LOL Jeremy, there was a couple there with two Springer Spaniels and Henry kept whining all the time wanted to be played with ... almost worked with getting rid of me, except I am more stubborn Wink

Cheers all,
Paul
