I love the challenge: How do you make a photo say ‘rain’ in an inspiring way? It isn’t easy. This shot was taken as evening was drawing in, and the rain had not long started. The old buildings (once stables, with accommodation for grooms and other staff) seemed to combine with the weather and time of day to give a moody, but intriguing effect.It's kind to share!
This scene was one of the highlights of a walk in the rain, on Friday evening. It’s always marvellous to watch how gracefully these creatures move. Perhaps the absence of crowds of people made them less afraid. As I slowly approached, they didn’t seem to mind.
The light was starting to fade; I had to use a slow shutter speed, and there will be some evidence of subject movement!
Who doesn’t love, as they say, a candle tree? This shot was taken in the evening, using quite a slow shutter speed, hence the slight blurring – which I think is sometimes not an undesirable effect. Large, old trees make me think, too. If they could talk, what stories they would have to tell!It's kind to share!
The hour after sunset is a wonderful opportunity for the photographer. Some people call it ‘magic hour.’ Here, I just happened to be in the right place at the right time.
