Been a while since I posted – mainly explained because I haven’t taken any photos…
Anyway, I recently invested in a 10-stop ND filter – it only lets through 1/1000th of the light, so a 1/30sec exposure becomes 30secs, making it easy to get long exposures in broad daylight.
I spent Monday morning wandering along the Grand Union Canal just outside Northampton. Took me ages to find it, as the roads bear no relation to what they were when I last went (probably about 25 years ago), and it’s mainly a big set of distribution centres. It’s one of the places I can genuinely look at and say “I can remember when all this was fields”.
A 15 second exposure
30 seconds – really annoyed by the smudge top-centre. I cleaned the sensor before the rugby on Sunday and still ended up with it. Really annoying.
