Hello reader, or it may be 2 now!
The new work gallery contains images from the medieval town of Lewes and the chalk cliff's of the South Downs at Birling Gap.
The town is a gem, it has a 1000 year old castle much of it gone, however the upper keep and barbican gate are well worth a visit, the views from the upper keep are fabulous. There are also the ruins of what was once a huge priory, Henry VIII and Cromwell put an end to this though! Still the priory does live on in other buildings as many of the stones were salvaged and reused across the town.
Birling Gap is close to Eastbourne and is at the end or the start of the South Downs! We were lucky, the weather was stunning, clear blue skies and white cliffs! I tried to experiment with slowing the motion of the water, quite difficult due to the brightness. With an ND and polarising filter, I managed to slow the shutter speed enough for the desired affect, however, I did get wet feet trying to capture the chalk bolder's in the image English Seas.
I hope you like the shots, if you wish to know more about them or wish to comment, just drop a reply to this blog.
Until the next.
I have an interest in photography and am attempting to train my eye and improve my technique!
