Silverstone Classic (21-23 July) three days of unrivalled entertainment with big crowds, and great paddock access at any such event, not to mention the massive range of off-track activity. so it was weekend of camping and motorsport and great British weather, camp site at Silverstone for this event is actually on the circuit with great facilities, food, bar and decent permanent toilets and shower blocks, a free shuttle tractor runs you back and forwards to the track, you can also jump on a shuttle bus to get you anywhere around the track.
Its endless motorsport all week end and because its open stadiums you can go anywhere ideal for photo opportunities my main lens was my trusty lightweight Nikon 55-300mm f/4.5, its a true petrol head weekend with proper sounding F1 cars like Nigel Mansell’s 1992 British Grand Prix-winning Williams FW14B and flame-spitting, Spa 24 Hour-winning Ford Sierra RS500, unfortunately the British weather wasn’t the best but still a great weekend of motorsport and photography combined well worth doing!
Greenan Castle is a 16th-century tower house, possibly on the site of an ancient fort, around 2.5 miles south-west of Ayr in South Ayrshire, Scotland the castle is perched upon the top of a sea cliff overlooking the Irish sea,
To be honest this a great location but time wasn’t on my side I had missed sunrise and I just couldn’t find a composition I liked, the wind was strong couldn’t get a reflection from the beach from the pools of water, I went one side to the other put the drone up not in happy with the shots from that, with time restraints i had to pack up, I put it down to sometimes you don't get a shot, but one for another day with better light and more time.
Something special about a sunrise, sunsets are good but the start of new day the air is different the piece and atmosphere are on another level, and they are more difficult to do as you have to get up early and especially in the summer, but standing not far from one of the wonders of the world and the best-known prehistoric monument in Europe wasn’t so bad, still to be at 4.30 at Stonehenge is early enough.
Blue hour wasn’t special but as the sun started to rise the sky started to pop, the golden colour was special another beautiful place to watch the sun come up and before the thousands of tourist all turn up, the light spread across the field was stunning, great thing about this location you drive past Stonehenge and little track on the right hand side running along the perimeter plenty of places to park and set up with a tripod.
