Power - Lines

By ade_mcfade      
Lots of these around at the mo - puddles that is.

My 5D's not taken a single shot this weekend... it'd just get wet if I took it out :-(

So here's one from Tuesday when i had a little jaunt east and got a few shots at Fairburn Ings.

A night of no direct sunlight but lots of cloud cover, pretty un-interesting light generally - often when I get my best stuff. You have to think more to get a shot when it's not layed up on a plate for you by a lovely sunset Smile

So this one's all about lines as the pun in the title suggests - power lines, white lines, lead lines, and if you can think of any other lines, let me know Smile

Never has a bit of road, a barrier, a pylon and a puddle looked so damned good. Hat's off to you.

cheers folks

was a top night Richard - played pretty well, the drummer stopped 1/2 way through town called malice as he'd dropped his drum sticks!

other than that, very enjoyable and not tooo drunken!

light was appaling for this one to be honest - it's all down to using filters and relying on experience of other sh1tty-light-shoots I've done. the light we had at Ferrybridge/Temple Newsham was infinitely better!

Another great shot Ade, you just have the eye for a good shot. This is the type of place most folk would just drive straight past.

I am liking this series your doing.

Nice work Ade.
As you said you have to work that bit harder, well it has paid off, well done.

You've got to like a line or 2 every now and then - makes for something more interesting if you ask me

Cheers folks - quite amazed that a shot of "bugger all" is teetering on the brink of an RC!

much appreciated - got one shot left in the series I think... but hope for good weather so I can get more!!!

Power in the countryside - a spring mission!
