For those of you who know, landscape photography has had to take a back seat over recent weeks due to contracting flu and then a rather nasty chest infection. I have been itching to get out and exercise my photographic muscles for a while now but not had the energy to do so.
A couple of weekends ago I decided to bite the bullet and get out with the gear and do a dusk-til-dawn shoot in the wonderful Yorkshire Dales - Malham in particular.
Whilst this does usually mean an uncomfortable night trying to sleep in the car, I decided to try my hand at some night photography with varying levels of success [or should that be failure?
] - more of that to come.
This shot was in a location I have never taken before, but one I will likely return too on Ing Scar above WatlowesDry Path - looking towards Comb Hill.
Weather reports said that a decent sunset was a good possibility, but a large cloud bank put paid to that. There seemed to be light all around the landscape, but not where I wanted it, so a good hour or so's perseverance was required to get any light at all for my first shot. This image was taken about 2 hours after I had arrived, but the light was wonderful for a few minutes when it did materialise.
