Nigel and I headed out to Limehouse Conservation Area to photograph the old ruins. I’ve been here a number of times and it can be difficult to find a new way to shoot the small bridge that stretches out over the river.
We lucked out with cloudy skies so that the dappled sunlight wouldn’t blow out the highlights causing a high contrast scene. I decided on a long exposure shot looking upstream.
After getting some shots here we decided to hop in the car to find an old bridge not too far away. As we drove I realized that I couldn’t remember where this bridge was. So instead of worrying we did some roadside shooting instead.
We found this small valley and I really liked how the reeds contrasted against the low hills in the distance. I shot the above photo as a panoramic and processed it in Lightroom’s photo merge feature.
