Blog 56 - Coate Water Park
The Water Park is a country park situated just south of central Swindon, near junction 15 of the M4. It takes its name from its main feature, a reservoir originally built to provide water for the Wilts & Berks Canal
The reason for the visit was the a 33ft high concrete diving platform in an Art Deco style that stands proudly out of the water built in 1935 and has been granted in 2013 Grade II listed status as I understand there are very few surviving Art Deco concrete diving boards left in the UK, so this could be another 2019 project to find and photograph the remaining.
Very simple image was all I wanted using a Lee 10 stop ND Filter and 3 stop grad filter to bring down the sky and Lee Polariser
Camera on bulb mode at f8 - Iso 64 - 200 second exposure using my sigma 17mm-70mm at 17mm
Park has a lot to offer for a walk around the lakes plenty of wildlife and great coffee shop serving food and snacks.
