Normanton Church on Rutland Water

Normanton Church on Rutland Water

Well my site is back up and I can get back to enlightening anyone who happens to stumble into my small chunk of the web. I have to go to London now and then and this time I thought I could break up the journey with a quick stop for some landscape photography. It just so happens that Rutland Water is almost exactly half way between where I live and the big smoke and if that wasn’t coincidence enough, it happens to have a rather nice church right on the shore. Normanton church is actually now a museum but it’s still pretty photogenic so I set up my tripod and started shooting. The low winter sun at this time of year can be great for photos as long as there aren’t too many clouds about and on this occasion I got very lucky, the sun literally appeared when I got the camera out and packed up when I packed up, that doesn’t happen very often I can assure you.
I had an idea of the shot I wanted, I used a grad to darken the sky and an ND filter to slow down the water, in the end this shot was taken at 30mm ISO160, f/11 for 30 seconds.
