Something that I love about Landscape Photography is that you never know what to expect when you head out. And that’s exactly what happened last weekend when I went to the Lake District.
The weather forecast looked good, promising dry weather with sunny intervals. What I hadn’t realised and what wasn’t obvious from my weather app is that Storm Corrie was about to hit the UK.
My intention had been to film the day for a video, but the conditions were terrible. There was driving rain and winds that blew me off my feet more than once. In the end, I came away with only a few short clips and not enough to make a YouTube video. I’m currently trying to figure out how to work the footage into something because it’s extremely funny watching me try to take photos.
Despite the horrendous conditions, I was able to capture quite a few shots that I like, including this one.
I shot this using a Panasonic G9 and Leica 12-60 lens. It’s a handheld exposure of 1/1000” at f/8.0 and ISO200. When I took it, I imagined the image as a black and white shot, but when I saw the colour version, I thought it looked better.
I hope you like the shot and have a great weekend.
