Askrigg rooftops and chimney pots just before sundown yesterday.
Plan A this week was to work in Cumbria over the weekend and then drive up to the Trossachs and hopefully capitalise on the cold weather to shoot some stock landscapes around the Aberfoyle area. Sadly though for the second time this autumn the weather let me down with only a couple of cold frosty days. I worked around Ullswater then Derwent Water over the weekend and managed to make some nice images. Yesterday plan B then was to head for home via Swaledale and Wensleydale.
The light as I came over Buttertubbs was magic and after taking a few photos near Hardraw I headed for Askrigg in the hope I would capture some nice late afternoon light over the rooftops. I know this viewpoint well and often take clients here to photograph this pretty village. Well, timing was perfect and the smoke spiralling from many of the chimney pots added a wonderful atmosphere to the scene. I used both my canon and Sony cameras to take a variety of compositions and this one here is with the Sony A7r with 100-400L Canon lens ISO 100 f16.
