Blog 41 - Steetley Pier
This was unexpected find just outside Hartlepool an old pier that was left from the the old Steetley Lime and Building Stone Company that was along the shoreline and the pier supplied water to the works.
So a bit of planning on sunset times, tide tables, airspace check and weather looked good and a new road has been built to serve the new housing estate you can park within 5 minutes of the pier.
Using a six stop Lee filter managed a few shots of this wonderful old pier as you can see a missing section was taken was taken down to stop people from walking down to the end of this old wooden structure.
Just a few from the day:-
Blog 40 - Warwickshire
Saturday and looking for inspiration and fancied a walk so went to a local wood for a walk with camera gear packed and tripod had a lovely walk through the woods but really couldn’t find a composition I liked, I really struggle to find order or groups in a wood, so settled that you don’t always need a photograph and just enjoy the walk even though i was arguing with myself i still wanted to go home with something.
I came to break and came out into the fields and found a great old dead tree along a tree line but the composition just didn’t work, the local farmer was ploughing his fields so I thought i would take 30 min and see what i can get from a few aerial shots.
So checked my flight information and quick risk assessment I was up love the lines and patterns of looking straight down on freshly ploughed field and watched as a tractor came into view and found a great composition looking down with the old tree and green trees either side. I was happy got my shot for the day.
This blog is intended to shed a little more information on what I'm up to and planning
