Yesterday we returned to Hever Castle. It was a beautiful spring day: pleasantly warm. In fact Spring is galloping through, due to unseasonably warm weather. Bluebells are already coming out and other aspects of Spring are weeks ahead of schedule.
Talk of photographing Waterfalls usually prompts thoughts of the necessity for a tripod. Not so. I never carry one. Some country gardens actually won’t allow them. I find them an encumbrance. They limit the ability to move freely and in consequence often stifle creative thinking. It’s often the case that a simple examination of the surroundings will identify a solid item – wall, rock, tree – against which a camera can be securely held obviating the need for a tripod. For the curious this was shot at ISO 100, F10, 1/6th second.
