Behind The Lens

This image was shot near Falmouth in Cornwall, England. I as on the cliff top above.
It was late afternoon
The light as just beginning to fade & the sea was merging into the skyline.
This was shot on my old camera, a Panasonic Lumix FZ50
I love to see the old masted ships & I have a nephew who is very much interested in history.
This ship was being used by a film company at the time & the film crew were along side in a modern day RIB. I have edited out the RIB as I felt it spoilt the nature of the image. I have also adjusted the exposure as light was fading.
In my camera bag
I travel very light. I keep a tripod in my car but uusally only carry my camera with me
Don't ignore the chance to get a picture just because you are losing light, sometimes there is still enough to capture that image. The RIB was a nuisance but manageable within the picture. Best advice, go for it.
