This week was one of those when it was difficult to get out with the camera at all, just so much happening at home. I did however capture one image of my local area.
This is literally a few minutes from my house and only a slight diversion from where I was going on that day. It’s a place I know well, and the light persuaded me it might be worth a shot.
This image won’t win any awards, but given it was captured impromptu I’m really pleased with how it came out. The key to this is simplicity.
It’s a very simple image, with no distractions, and often that works well. It was a windy day so I used a 30s exposure to smooth the water. The result is a feeling of calm.
For those photographers amongst you, or those who want to develop their skills, keeping it simple is a great lesson to keep in mind. When you try and over-think images, they can be less effective.
I hope you like it, and thanks for looking :-)
