Here Comes the Sun

By MrsS    
Right! So we'd trudged all the way UP Twisleton Scar, climbed over a dry stone wall and picked out a suitable subject!

Now what??

Well. let's check out the clouds - - NONE - - oops NO, there's one, totally in the wrong place of course!

Ok, so no clouds, what next?

Well, find your angle, settle down and wait - -

THEN, realise your b@m is now getting wet through sitting on the grass, and go and find the carrier bags from camera bag to protect one's delicate derriere.

Ok, now drying out and settled - - what do we do next?

WAIT- - WAIT- - - WAIT!

----- and eventually, the sun managed to struggle over Ingleborough and the air was filled with the sound of shutter releases!! Wink

0.3sec @f16 ISO100 f/l17mm Lee .9 ND soft grad, B+W Polariser

Taken at PRECISELY 8am!

Thanks for looking - - enjoy whatever you do today, only three days to Focus, see you there Smile

Cheers!

Try as I might Lee, I can't remember how I did it, and haven't been able to do it again! Tongue

Was suppposed to be going to shoot some squirrels today, but we've got flat grey skies here, and I've finally succumbed to whatever it is that Paul has Sad

So, tucked up warm with lots of lemsips and watch daytime tv (think I'd rather be out in the cold and damp!) Wink
