Redgate Serenity


Ah the serenity you can almost feel it.    This image was taken when I went down south with Neal and Kirk in November.   We got there with high hopes and saw that a break in the clouds was starting to happen, but rain also started to make its way to us and it was heavy rain.    Neal chucked the trusty $1 shower cap onto his camera, whilst Kirk and I hid under a rock.   Eventually we all ran up to our cars, extremely disappointed as we had no backup location.    We hung around for another 10mins and we got lucky, all of a sudden the rain stopped for a few minutes, the clouds allowed the sun to peak through and we scored a magnificent sunset!   Talk about everything falling into place at the right time.    Needless to say we headed back to Photo HQ very happy campers.  

Has this happened to any of you guys?   You get there and think that its not going to happen for you, when all of a sudden it does?   Its pretty cool isn’t?

Anyhow, thanks for stopping by and reading my blog.

    I’ve been really impressed by these last few posts from you, mate. You’ve really lifted your game as of late 😀 I am proud to have my work below your work (logo) haha…

    I have a similar story to yours… My most popular photo on flickr, with 7500 views and almost 200 favourites ( ) was taken minutes before it started to bucket down. I was lucky that I arrived early enough to grab a few snaps before having to jump back in the car for shelter.

    Another briliant one mate, you’re on a roll ! I’ve had the same thing happen many times, the weather can change in an instant so you never can predict a good night – you just have to be out there and be ready!

    To all of you thank you very much. Yes something seems to have clicked and I’m ‘seeing’ what could be in my photos a lot better. For now any way. 😉

    Hi Jamie,
    Nah it usually goes the other way I expect to shoot a nice image then the elements don`t come together! Nice new logo – good work Beau.

    Hi Dylan,

    Thank you for such a nice compliment. Make sure you do go down south and don’t forget to drop in and see Mr Fletcher in his gallery.
