Dark Days by PastyGuy Dark Days by PastyGuy
Image

As many of you know, the UK has been hit by alot of very severe snow storms, in which no one knows what to do... so the whole country comes to a stand still, exept the photographers of course. I shot this yesterday afternoon when the snow first started to fall in Cornwall. I made for the nearest spot which I knew of a few possible compositions.

I worked on this shot for about 15 minutes dodging in and out of the shelter to avoid the storm. Just as a cloud of snow passed I noticed the sun trying to break through, I took my chance and shot a couple of exposures before it dissapeared behind the next heavy leaded cloud.

Location

Carn Brea, Cornwall, UK

Date and Time

02/02/2009, 14:55

Equipment

Nikon D70 | Tokina 12-24mm | focal length 18mm | ISO200 | f/18 | 1/10s | Manafrotto 055PROB tripod + 141RC tilt pan head

This is GREAT and should be in a museum and on some corporate wall and in the lobby of a major office building also.

The sun breaking through really makes this shot, i admire your patience, i'm a the stage where i'm still not great at planning a shot and i probably would have missed that light.

You just need to be patient and decisive with your shots, I'm still learning tbh I do miss opportunities now and then It just takes time.

don't want to sound like a broken record but 'composition' was the first thing that sprang to my mind too..! Really like the colour theme too, feels nice and chilly..
