Afternoon light at The Strid

Afternoon light at The Strid - Latest Work

A Sunday afternoon stroll in the Strid Wood with the bonus of making this image. More often than not this is an early morning location for me. I prefer to have the place to myself, because it's a popular spot at a more sociable hour.I had planned an image with low sun of an autumn afternoon lighting the eastern bank of the River Wharfe, and with the water level pretty high. I was close to the edge, and a slip would have been disastrous, but the rock was dry, so it was relatively secure.

Nikon D800 24mm lens f13 1.3 seconds. 2/11/2014 15.01.
