Crosby Sunset at Antony Gormleys "Another Place" 23 march 2015 pt2
Next stop is Crosby beach , to hopefully shoot sunset around the Antony Gormleys "Another Place" beach sculptures. After seemingly driving around in circles we have arrived on the promenade , time for a walk on the beach to see which will be the best statues to photograph when the sun starts to set.
The Terrible Twosome are a bit confused! Mol went up to this one wagging her tail ! lol
Haha Chester thinks this one is a real person with a shirt on :)
After walking along the beach to the end of this section of promenade, we walk back to the car. its almost time to get my tripod out and find a good location to shoot from . I want to get reflections in water around a statue but it is fairly breezy and the pools left around the statues are quite rippled :(
The low sun has illuminated the Edge of the channel with two statues in the background.
I am crouching down low to get the sun behind the statue .
I thought this winding stream would make a good lead in to the composition when i spotted it from high up on the promenade. and with the low setting sun it looks really good .
While i moved closer in to shoot Jan has shot me along with a statue :)
This is the image i have just shot , as the sun was setting to the right, using my long 100-400 lens to fill the frame with colour around the Windfarm and statue :)
Now a wide angle with normal shutter speed showing the ripples on the water .
And now with the Lee big stopper and 0.6 nd grad filters to give a long shutter speed to smooth out the water a bit.
My last image , the sun has set but no further colour has developed :(
