Covenham . . . again!! by paul10

Covenham . . . again!!

I was in one of those pacey moods tonight. Us landscaper photographers know the one - where you keep getting up off your comfy sofa where you're half-heartedly enjoying something on TV to looking out your living room window. And you wonder - is the sky actually going to light up or is it just toying with me? In the end Helen got fed up with my constant mooching and all but kicked me out of the house. It was the boot up the backside I needed. I didn't know where to go. All I knew was that I wanted a long exposure shot, so . . . Covenham Reservoir it was. I can't help but be drawn to place at the moment. Hopefully I'll find somewhere else to photograph in the near future :) This image is a four minute exposure :)
Superb

This is beautiful.

Gorgeous :)
I know that mood well... usually I spend so much time being indecisive that the scene has peaked and I've missed it by the time I get it together to go for it lol

I LOVE your long exposures, Paul. Don't stop. I want to start doing some as well. Just need to get past the resistance of lugging the tripod along and setting it up.

Well worth getting up for, a magnificent capture with wonderful reflections and tones.

Love the depth and perspective in this neat shot

It's great! 4 minutes! I will have to try that. Have you tried the sunset.wx site? They predict sunrises/sunsets each day.

Beautiful sunset Paul, I love your long exposurees!
I was chuckling as I was reading your description because I do the same, I look out the window and wonder is this going to turn into a fantastic sunrise, should I go and check it out!! Often I get skunked and come home with nothing, but when it is -27C and you get skunked it is discouraging!!

@phil_sandford Thank you :)
@fbailey Thank you :)
@inthecloud5 Thank you. It has been a little hard lately with all the greyness about :/
@mittens Thank you very much :)
@m2016 Haha - glad I'm not the only one. I've missed plenty too. And thank you :)
@365karly1 Thank you. I hardly ever take my camera out without having my tripod attached to my camera bag. It's second nature and well worth the effort and reward you get for those long exposure shots :)

@ludwigsdiana Thank you :)
@seattlite Thank you :)
@danette Thank you, and no, I haven't tried the site, but I will now. Thanks for the heads up :)
@radiogirl It is hard to know sometimes if the journey will be worth it, but then, just being out is often worth it. But -27 - ouch! Not sure I could even imagine how cold that would be. Wouldn't mind giving it a go though :)
@365anne Thank you :)
@ilovelenses Thank you very much :)

@jo38 Thank you. It pains me to say it but she was right :D
@carole_sandford Thank you - I still have the boot print :o
@beryl Thank you :)
@rjb71 Thanks mate. I'm usually on the school run or dropping the boy off at his swim training. So frustrating. Gotta make the most of those weekends mate :)

You've inspired me to dig out the ND's and grads, I bought them some time back and have never really used them. Fav for this shot Paul.
January 8th, 2019  
@gamelee Thanks mate. Be good to see what you get if (or when) you do give them a go. They're a lot of fun :)
