Reculver Towers through the mist by 

Stuart Chapman,Bob Culshaw and myself took a trip to Reculver (Kent,U.K.) on a dark,misty and cold evening (08/02/2011). This shot is the result of Stuart showing us this viewpoint. It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening thanks to the company of two fellow Redbubblers!

    It was a pleasure to finally meet you Geoff. I only tried one from this angle and soon tried others so glad you percervied from here and got this. That’s great control over the moon and I like how the sky bands from blue to red either side of the towers. Nice lighting on the wateras well the painting of light is just right.

  • Thanks Stuart. Yes, it was good to meet at last! Without you showing us this spot, I could not have taken this.Have you seen Bob’s shot?It is from the same spot more or less but he has given it a different treatment.

    Excellent Geoff – great to meet you last night. We should do these mini-meets more often. It’s a shame you have chosen this image to put up – mine is ready for uploading in 5 mins! Same angle – slightly different effect..! Best regards, hope to meet up again soon.

  • Thanks Bob. I have just looked at your’s and it is very similar isn’t it! Sorry that I got in first. It was good meeting you and Stuart at last.
