For over a week i was waiting for a sunny day to take this shot and at long last one arrived, but the only problem i had was that this nice sunny day had winds gusting to 40mph!!!
I still managed to take a few ok shots of the Heather covered hillside and i also captured a lot of movement of the bracken in the strong winds.
I used an ND8 Graduated filter

Hi Jamie, these are just amazing colors and without any doubt your 40mph-wind contributes to the life of your photograph. NIce soft colors on the flowers. Thanks for sharing...Alex
