Baslow Edge

By Pete      
Taken this evening on Baslow Edge. I'm about an hour away and looking through the window at 7pm the sky was dramatic and the sun was out so I assumed a sunset would occur. I shot off over to Derbyshire and was greeted with this stormy sky (lightning in the distant hills). The sun had vanished so I had to make do with dull clouds. I took a couple of shots before the rain started. As I headed back I got drenched.
It's a 90 second exposure using the Lee Filters Big Stopper and the Olympus OM-D in LIVETIME mode.

You've produced a very weird effect with this long exposure. It works really well.

So often the story - but still a powerful image.

This I like Pete, decent pastels.

A bit flicker`ish I know but would you mind adding this to the 4/3 group Smile Smile

Explaining how you set up the shot and the live time mode.

I`m now a beginner with this camera Smile

Am I right in thinking this is the same rock you've shot a few years back ?

I'm standing in front of it as I type this, was working in the area so thought I'd have a wonder along the edge for a reccie. Fingers crossed for a decent sunset later on Wink
