Gloriously Cold

30th November 2012
It has been a stunning day out today. I was working in the north of Cumbria, and took a wee diversion over the border into Northumberland at lunchtime where I explored a section of Hadrian's Wall I haven't had a chance to investigate as yet. It has a lot of potential for some photography as it happens (I took a few frames up there but haven't had a chance to process them as yet).

My final port of call was Lazonby, and for some reason I took a very random back road way to get over there from Brampton, which led to my shot of the day taken at Croglin:

Yes, that is right - an actual proper photograph! It seems like an age since I have uploaded one!

This was one of those scenes that unfolded as I was driving along, I just had to find somewhere to photograph it from! I was drawn to the background of the Lakeland Fells with the mist and golden light and needed to find a foreground that would work. The wall running into the field was perfect and created a scene that really forced a portrait orientation. I am really quite pleased with the end result!
