Who let the water out?
Yesterday I showed you the view from the bridge looking onto the inner quayside, harbour and Sulby River and was asked if I could show the view in the opposite direction, flowing out to see. So doing a 180 degree turn this is the polar opposite view looking directly onto the outer harbour east quay and out to the Irish sea and beyond to the UK. As you can see someone pulled the plug out the harbour and let all the water out. Just by turning round and taking this image you can see how the light is fading further. Always adjust your setting re the light if you can, that is if you are using your manual settings. Don't forget how the sun rises and falls East and West so a turn of 180 degrees and a minute later will have a bearing on the light. Check out yesterday against today and you can see how that one minute and position change has drastically deepened the blue and introduced a peachy gold tone on the horizon instead of the pastel pink. If i had left the setting as they were the image would just be a flat dark, not graded shades. Even in Manx minute a world of change can happen.
This leads me nicely onto my closing words. It is wonderful for me to not only show you Ramsey but now and again pass on a few tips in a light hearted way without getting too technical, encourage you rather than bombard you with info. Well good people out there here's someone else to check out Brett Trafford. See my links he's there and he has been my go to guy for ages. Well guess what he's only gone and started his only CDP - click Leek Daily Photo and hop to his excellent photography tips blog too. By the way he was also a blog of note like me and responsible for nominating me too for several awards. What can I say he knows a fabulous photographer when he sees on and he is extraordinary too.
I am going somehwere hush hush(not really) tomorrow and breaking my cover of Babooshka for the day. All I can say for now. If you're good I'll tell all about it.
