An Evening at Reculver, Kent, England by Bob Culshaw

An Evening at Reculver, Kent, England by 

Went on a mini RB meet last evening with Stuart Chapman and Geoff Carpenter 2 fellow RB members living in Kent.

We visited Reculver looking for some night shots. Only my second experience of attempting to ‘shoot in the dark’ and what a challenge it was. Beautiful starlit night but with a rising mist, strong light influences from the night illumination of the towers – but hey it was great fun. Good company, chilly evening, wet cameras, wet feet – what more do you want?

    Hi Bob, well done mate! Sorry I got in first. Your stars show up well! A very enjoyable evening and we must do it again! Soon!!!

  • Thanks Geoff – it’s interesting that we both chose the same shot to display! Totally agree, Stuart mentioned perhaps some dawn work next!

    It was a pleasure to finally meet with you Bob. At least you two stopped at wet feet, my trousers were wet after the final rock hop back to the car!

    Love how the stars have popped out here and that’s a nice bit of light painting on the water outlight. I like how you (and Geoff managed it too) to split the light with red and blue either side of the towers.

    Do you think if we meet up everytime the Dale and the Gills play we’d win 3-1?

  • Hey Stuart the pleasure was all mine – great to meet you too! yes thrilled I got the stars – interesting that Geoff and I have chosen the same work to display!

    Re the soccer – perhaps we should arrange to meet every Saturday untill the end of the season to ensure that there is a Dale v Gills match next season!

    Best regards – until the next time!
