Through The Viewfinder and What Alice Found There
It's been a whole month since I wrote my last blog post, so I thought it was time to post a new one! June and the start of July have been busy months for me so far, with another beautiful wedding to shoot and edit, along with all my landscape work and the beginning of my university dissertation! I've still managed to go on quite a few of my usual weekly walks out into the Lakes so in this post I will show you a quick snapshot of my recent adventures...
1. Hawes Water Nature Reserve
2. Sizergh Castle
3. Derwent Water
4. Fell Foot
5. High Dam
6. Near Coniston
7. Morecambe Bay
8. Moss Eccles Tarn
This last photo didn't come out as well as I'd hoped, but it was my first attempt at photographing a thunderstorm! I was about to go to bed one night a few weeks ago when I heard thunder outside and when I opened my blinds a huge fork of lightning lit up the sky right outside my window! I quickly grabbed my camera and was in the process of setting up on my windowsill when another flash came so I quickly pressed the shutter, praying I'd managed to get it. Luckily I did, but unfortunately the photo is out of focus slightly as I hadn't finished setting up my camera when it was taken! It's a shame, but I'm glad I managed to get something as I stayed up until 2am that night and this was the only lightning I managed to get on camera! It all happens so fast and it's so hard to predict where and when it's going to happen. It was such a fantastic sight to see though, and I'd love to try photographing another storm sometime to see what kind of results I can get when I'm a bit more prepared!
