River Brathay

By robporter
This was taken just after my upload from last night, about twenty feet further along the river bank. The sun rolled across the land for about ten mins in total, before the rain swept in. You can see the rain much closer now, and I had about 30 seconds to take the shot, dismantle my stuff and pack it before I got soaked!

Personally this is my favourite of the two. I love the light on the reeds set against that forbidding sky.

F22, 1/10th sec, 24-70mm L

All comments, good or bad, welcome.

Ta, Rob.

Extraordinary contrast between the lovely bright sunlight and the foreboding dark clouds. This is an excellent capture indeed.
