PHOTO OF THE WEEK~September 3rd to September 9th


"Sun Set over Watermead Park"

by dhandjh
Thumb Up



This is what Dave says about your POTM decision:
"I am a member of a camera club (Ulverscroft Camera Club) based just outside of Loughborough.  The evening I took this photograph I was leading a photowalk for members around Watermead Country Park.  I guess there was a group of around 12-14 or so.  We started at around 7pm knowing that sunset would be at around 9pm and planned to be in the best spot to capture the sun setting across one of the lakes.  Luckily for me, for a few minutes during the sunset, the sun illuminated the underside of some high clouds that suddenly made the sunset just a little better than normal.  The photo was taken with my Nikon and a wide angle lens supported on a tripod.  A longer exposure might have brightened up the foreground but I would have lost the wonderful detail in the sky (which was the main subject) so I knew where I had to compromise.
"

CONGRATULATIONS dhandjh!

Thanks for voting my contribution as PotW - a nice surprise while I enjoy the last few days of my holiday in Dorset!  Luckily I have a wifi connecting in the holiday home as there is no mobile signal and this could have passed me by completely without finding out for a few days!  Then you would have thought me rude for not thanking you!

Cheers

David (aka dhandjh)
