On a stairway to heaven...

By C_Daniels
And it makes you wonder...

...If heaven is something a bit like Padley Smile

Mode - aperture priority.
Aperture - f5.6.
Shutter speed - 1/40 of a second.
Exposure compensation - (-1.0)
Taken handheld.

Ian providing a spot of retro modelling on the steps down to the stream at Padley Gorge.
I thought the steps looked interesting but required a point of interest and Ian volunteered.
Taken on the meet there last Sunday...

Thanks for showing some interest here, it was a great meet with company to match.

Oh, I forgot to say something about the picture. I was just blown away by Ian's modelling prowess!

Like the contrast and the low viewpoint, although I'm glad there isn't a large version. I don't really want to see up his nose. Smile

I took several shots, then me and Ian viewed them and redid the take again to get the light just right with the exposure on his face...

He was up and down the steps a bit Smile

Wish you'd ticked mods, would like to let you see my version of this! (No offence Ian, just don't want to put a pic of you in my PF! LOL)
Maybe you could do an hour challenge, best shot of Ian in a John Travolta stance on steps in Padley Gorge!

Great shot. Brings back good memories of a great meet.

Thanks for the feedback and funny captions!

It's good to have a sense of humour, without it we all become very stale...

Thanks Smile
