In my experimental film 📸
I accidentally took these pictures yesterday while doing test shots trying to warm my camera up - but it was still too cold at first, so the shutter was significantly delayed and I got these long exposure, light trail, film looking pictures 💡
After about 2-3 hours of trial and error in 10-15 degrees I finally was able to capture the north celestial pole smack dab in the middle of the frame. The motionless star you see in the middle is Polaris, the North Star. I tried to edit this photo for an hour or two and finally decided it just doesn’t need it. Can’t wait to keep practicing! #astrophotography
I ventured into our neighbouring county, Devon today. I was in search of some moody seascape goodness and boy I got it in bucketloads!
The entire day was plagued with rain, not the sort you'd need an umbrella for but the type that ruins 9/10 shots. I was constantly wiping my filters - not fun!
Having took a wrong turn at sunrise ending in scaling a vertical cliff to get back on the coast path I'd missed the colours as the sun lit up the clouds. What followed was 3 hours of sheer frustration.
A beautiful location - Blackchurch Rock is a rock stack similar to Durdle Door but the conditions were really against me.
I persevered and I think i've got something to warrant the insane climb down and up again, cuts n bruises n all.
Back in the car it was probably time to get a little sleep but the tides wait for no man and off to Hartland Quay it was!
I'd had the misfortune of visiting at high tide in the past, seeing the stunning rocky coast exposed wasn't something I was going to miss this time!
Thankfully the rain stopped long enough for me to explore and shoot the images I'd been thinking of all week.
One final explore to an area before packing up and I stumbled upon these boulders nestled between the jagged rocks. A few minutes later and I'd bagged my favourite shot of the entire day and possibly for quite a while.
