Brandlehow Burst ...

By sut68    
One from early yesterday morning down at Brandlehow Bay in the Lake District. After a rather restless nights 'sleep' in the car, Fran & myself dragged ourselves out and wearily made our way down to the landing stage and waited for the day to break.

Although we hadn't had any breakfast at this point ourselves, this didn't stop the midges having their fill - judging by the lumps we both are currently doing our best not to scratch Sad

This was one of the last shots I took before packing up. The early colour had predominantly disappeared and the light was getting harsher, so I decided to whack on the BIG Stopper for a play ... the sun creeping over the tops of the fells was a bonus Smile

0.6 ND grad [hard] + Lee BIG Stopper, processed in Lightroom 3.

Cheers for dropping by.

Paul

Hey Paul, great to hear from you ... the midge bites on the side of my head are just about unnoticeable Wink

Would love to come down under for a visit, time, costs and my inability to get on a plane for any length of time are the only barriers that I can see. Hope life is well 'down there' and please give my best wishes to your lovely Charmaine too Grin

Been looking at the Singh Ray for a while now Terry, would like to think if things pick up I might be able to afford one in the future.
