Watching the River. My favourite sound in the world is the sound of running water. Nothing beats it. How about you?
Which made shooting this scene, near Marles Wood in Lancashire, all the more calming and peaceful.
Twenty feet away, Bamber was enjoying a beer and shooting the sunset. This is how we roll.
I’ll Have It On The Rocks. Sunday was a strange one for adventuring. We originally set out for Nicky Nook near Scorton in Lancashire. But, after arriving there and venturing in completely the wrong direction (eventually ending up in some guy’s pheasant farm) we had to head back.
Both me and Bamber were unsatisfied with this outcome so we set out again. This time we ended up at the River Ribble at Marles Wood. There is a sharp turn in the Ribble and lots of big rocks on our bank. We scoured the area for other shots, but came back here to get the sunset and subsequent “Blue Hour”.
I’m glad we finished the day with a result. =]
Triple Arch. This is the Aqueduct that crosses the River Ribble, shot during mine, Bamber and Fie’s hike through the Tolkien Trail. The triple-arch structure marked us as being about 90% of the way through our journey.
This graceful stone aqueduct was constructed in the 1880s by the Blackburn Corporation. It originally carried water from Whitehall via an underground pipeline.
We also rested upon reaching the Aqueduct, more for Bamber’s sake: as in order to get here, we had to cross through a field of very tall grass and Bamber suffered one of the worst hayfever attacks I’d ever seen. Poor guy.
Damn you, rain!
I’ve not had many opportunities to shoot recently, largely because as we’re now properly in Summer this of course means that it rains near constantly here in the North of England. I wouldn’t mind taking rainy, city-at-night shots but I’ll be damned before I get my camera wet. How do you tackle rainy situations?
Thankfully, before the Spring Showers began their onslaught, we were treated to a beautiful summer-like weekend at the beginning of April. Me and my friend Angie went for a photowalk around the outskirts of Preston and I got this shot of a perfectly clear and crystalline River Ribble.
Not a single cloud in the sky.
Although, later on in the walk, I had a little… accident involving bad judgement and the shore of the Ribble. We don’t talk about that.
