During my recent visit to Bolton Abbey I managed to catch a nice shot of trees in the dying sunlight. Nothing spectacular but pleasing to my eye. As I was taking the shot, an idea occurred to me for an abstract version of the same ( something I’ll have read about along the way no doubt and not in the least bit ‘original thought’)
I closed the aperture 3 or 4 stops and panned slowly downwards to create movement. Something like a 1.5 second exposure. Here are both shots.
