Full of water and vandalised, but after coming all this way I wanted to get a shot of it despite the rubbish weather conditions.
It’s one of the Lancashire Panopticons, I’ve visited a few others over the previous years and I thought this would be the best! I have to admit I was slightly dissapointed, it’s worth a visit, but the best panopticon for me has to be the ringing singing tree.
-3 Degrees and in the middle of nowhere! But it felt good to get out with the camera :)
Extremely annoyed that the focus is out though. I took off my Sigma 24-70 f/2.8 and stuck the kit lens on (18-105mm), making it extremely hard to focus as the inside misted over. I’ve got to get myself a wide angle lens soon!
The Moon was so powerful last night! I’ve wanted to light this place up at night for a while, but I wanted to do it under a Moonlit sky.
Sometimes you just can’t beat the power of the Moon to lend a helping hand.
After propping up the camera on my bag, as this was the only place I could stabilise it! (My D7000 is being repaired again, and the tripod quick release plate was taken off before sending it back). I wasn’t going to post it as I’m not happy with it, but you can see what I’m trying to achieve. Lots more to perfect what I’m looking for yet though.
Composition went out the window as well! I’ve cropped this to remove the bottom of the camera bag lol!
