Happy New year to a you all.
I hope the new year brings you much luck love and happiness; despite worrying times ahead around the globe, with the political debacles about to unravel in the coming year.
Here are a couple of spots along the River Rivelin in the Rivelin Valley. It was a lovely crisp late morning on the 2nd January so I popped out for a couple of hours sat on my bum waiting for some long exposures to come through. Just near the junction of A57 and the A6101 heading to the Rivelin Dam. I did not have much time to pop to the Dam, so I stayed near the Rivelin Conservation Group car park at Rails Road. ‘Footbridge at Rivelin Rails Road’ was at 8 minutes exposure with the big stopper. ‘River Rivelin above Upper Coppice Wheel’ is the longest ever I have dared to go to even at F16 at 16 minutes. I can fully appreciate the exposure time and it has worked and I have nailed it with the big stopper. The air was cool and the sensor has less risk of overheating leaving terrible little hot pixels. During post processing you do have to very careful bringing any detail out, as you risk bringing I dust spots. I am happy with the outcomes, except for my troubles with my hyperfocal distance. Maybe I am having issues with my glasses or cannot judge distance very well. I will have to dig out the Bosch laser measure 😀 and consider going to another optician!
