curtains of Crummock by GlennC

Currently unavailable for purchase

Taken looking down Crummock water in the lake district on a beautiful Autumn evening with friends. The colours were so striking I almost considered not processing to B&W! but felt the mono added to the brooding feel I had whilst taking this image.

Taken with a Canon 5D/24-70/10 stop ND + 3 stop grad. 6 mins exposure at f11.

    what a wonderful feeling you have captured here sonI never thought of taking that view but you have made it work, you have kept the feel of the night and you have controlled the high lights well I love the sweep of the clouds over the fell.
    did you consider cropping the left side to the top of the ramp, as I feel the image is in between the ramp and the right side (just my thoughts)

  • Thanks Dad, how could I possibly crop this to a geometric shape with equal length sides… ( can’t mention the S….. word )!!
