Chalkney Woods

We visited Chalkney Woods last weekend in the Colne Valley. I took the following picture without looking at the settings on my camera at all, it was in aperture priority mode so the picture was always going to be, at least viewable, but the shutter speed calculated was 3 seconds. I fired the shutter and immediately realised I hadn’t checked my exposure as I could hear the camera not closing the shutter. I thought nothing more of it until I downloaded the picture this evening and got this:

Not bad for a handheld 3 second exposure!
