The Mooring

I visited the old church at Chickney this afternoon and took some long exposure shots as the clouds were nipping by at a good pace…I wasn’t satisfied with the pictures I was getting so popped inside and shot that for a while. Thing is, I’ve photographed this church a few times now and I really wasn’t getting anything new so I decided to have a look at the back of the Church and found a path through a field of growing wheat. I wandered off and found myself at this lovely small boating pond and set up to shoot some long exposures here.

As tends to happen a lady soon arrived wanting to know what I was up to, turns out I’d wandered onto private land. The lady was very nice about it and was happy for me to carry on and I’m really grateful that she did as I got this cracker.

I’ve included the colour version as well which has a completely different feel to it – let me know in the comments which one you prefer.

If you’re wondering the shot was taken with my 10 stop ND filter along with a 0.6 ND grad filter for the sky. This gave a 2 minute exposure time.
