Tree in Wind Long Exposure

Tree in Wind Long Exposure

A few weeks ago I was asked to an event in the remote, hidden, private estate that is The College Valley in North Northumberland, close to the town of Wooler.

After the event, I had the chance to wander around the Valley taking a few shots of the spectacular views.

The weather was bright but blustery, the wind was pushing the clouds overhead quickly, meaning getting some effective Long exposures were possible. Here is one of the results…

It was shot using a B+W 10 stop filter, shot at f/16 and for 22 seconds. Even with a relatively short exposure the image was approaching having highlights blown out and being unrecoverable. Processed of course in Lightroom 4.1.

This was an image I rejected for use in the theme “Tree” for the July Scavenger hunt which I am taking part in.
