Photographer's Note

Hello All

This is my first shot from the recent TE meet in the Lake District with the usual suspects plus Viviane and Chris form Holland. If you want to know why I am posting this shot much after the other attendees, it is a long story but basically I have been to the moon and back in miles travelled in the last 48 hours! Not even Viv and Chris have travelled as far and they came from Holland!

This is Castlerigg Stone circle at around 6.30 a.m. It was built around 4,300 years ago in the Neolithic period. Such circles were thought to be meeting places for prehistoric communities for ceremonial events, or possibly a place of trade for stone tools. No one seems quite sure!

Technically there is a lot wrong with this image - its clarity and grain, a lack of sharpness and is generally not outstanding in quality. It was taken with an 3 stop ND filter and was underexposed by as much so checking for flaws in the WYSIWYG viewfinder on my camera was not really a priority for me. I just wanted to create the sunburst with this technique to see how it looked.
