Spent Sunday night and Monday morning in the Lake District  ( Borrowdale area ) to update a few shots. The first shot ( Buttermere ) below was the hardest having negotiated the Honister pass I had to wait about 2 hours for the wind to calm down and for people to get out of the way. One couple realised what I was doing and told me they would sit to the left out of picture which was very good of them but then he started throwing stones into the water for his dog not realising I was waiting for a calm water shot. Anyway I got the shot about 9.00 pm when everyone had gone then it was back over the Pass to Borrowdale to my tent and a few pints in the local pub.

Dawn was much better at Derwentwater not a soul in sight until about 8.30 am  when a woman turned up in her car took one snap with her compact and drove off .( Pays off to be there early on a Monday morning out of the main holiday season ).

Thanks Dave. Both the Buttermere and Derwentwater shots are two shots stitched together.

From the Buxton Military Tattoo last night - always a sellout months before.
And what a location!



And an opportunity to do one of the techniques I enjoy most: slow shutter

   Love the drumer shot. Shutter speed just right.
   Been to Buxton loads of times, I never knew the inside of that building was like that!
