Ha! I just keep forgetting to snip it off. I'm glad you've stopped wanking thinking about me though.

Love the LR Moley and you should do a proper thread.

I won't mention the awful horseshoe.

Me too. Moles, do it.

Where is that by the way- looks pretty stunning and I be from a long way away the sight of you crossing that moor looks like someone carrying an Olympic torch across the hills in the distance.

Yes but it placates the horseriders when you thunder past them as they think it means" I have horses too" when in fact it's just the current tally of horses you've mashed.

I thought it simply meant that the rest of the horse's leg was buried in the radiator.

It's Bretherdale Head in the Lake District, it's a proper green lane but was pretty gnarly in places and included very narrow gates to go through. As the Lakes has had lots of weather over the past few years the condition of them all has deteriorated and they are all now mostly rock, it was also very pissing it down. Here's a couple of pictures without the LR in the way. Normally you can cross that river at the bottom but the force was such that we decided against it so these are on the way back over.

I had just had the bonnet open, God knows why I didn't close them for the picture and it's annoying me now.

I've never been sure about that effect on water. It's very soothing to look at, but I'm not sure I like it.

I kind of agree. It's quite satisfying to take but not something I'd want on my wall.

It's the first thing everyone who gets a proper camera does. When my brother got an SLR at the age of sixteen or seventeen he joined the local photography club and took millions of pictures like that.

Long exposures of moving water can work to produce an agreeable picture, but controlling the highlights becomes a pain in the arse (unless you use a filter, which is a different pain in the arse).

I regard it as an option of last resort to be used on those rare occasions when there is no alternative (eg. the waterfall is in a gloomy ravine and there isn't enough light for anything but a long exposure). Unfortunately it seems that every fcuker who ever publishes a photograph, at whatever level, is under the impression that you have to do it no matter what. (Indeed I vaguely remember one actually asserting that that was the case.) Which means that the easiest way to obtain a decent image of some waterfall that you can't see for yourself may be to extract an I frame from an HD video of it, because anything taken as a still image that you can possibly find will be blurred to fcuk.

Generally falling water on the kind of scale you tend to find in England comes out best at around 1/125, to strike the right compromise to make the photo capture at least some of the sense of movement you get when looking at the real thing. Short exposure frozen shots can be interesting but mostly just look frozen, and long exposures look like the watercourse has a severe case of dry rot.

I must be the only person that's not done a long(ish) exposure of water then.
I like pin sharp photos, and velvety water just doesn't do it for me I'm afraid.
I will probably try it at some point, but round here I'm bereft of waterfalls and fast moving rivers. Also you need a tripod, so it's just more stiff to lug around.

I've never done one either, but like them sometimes, maybe the sea ones are better.
