Finally, and thankfully, the incessant rain and storms over the last three months seem to have ceased this week, giving way to blue skies and sun. I had a spare few hours this afternoon so I nipped up the A6 towards one of my favourite valleys: Longsleddale.
As is usually the case, the valley was super quiet and a deep-seated peace settled over me. Above is a composition that’s not particularly new to my repertoire, but the light was lovely, the air was crisp, and I just felt it needed sharing. =)
Longsleddale, Lake District, Cumbria, England.
ISO100, f/13, 1⁄10secs at 16mm (24mm full-frame equiv.) using a circular polariser, a soft 3-stop ND grad filter, and a 10-stop full-ND filter stacked on my Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 lens attached to a Nikon D7000. I shot three frames for focus stacking and then took a 102sec exposure to streak the moving clouds, blending in that long exposure later in post.
