SOMERSET LEVELS 292 – EARLY IN THE DAY, JUST BEFORE MIDWINTER
April 7, 2017 8 Comments
Composition: a noisy, grainy, blurry image – no more than an impression of what it was like being there. And what was it like being there? Well, it was ******* cold and, despite 1/250th and image stabilisation, I was lying across the outside of the car, hoping to high heaven that, shivering as I was, I could still hold the camera steady. Did I have a tripod with me? Yes. Could I be bothered to use it? Nope – but then that’s always the case! This image is very much a series of horizontal layers, one on top of the other, the darkness of the ground moving up, in a series of discreet steps, into the first welcome tints of the day.
