Beautiful Church Stretton_4978 - Sunrise, Sunsets & Nightscenes
Commissioned to produce for Kaboodle in Church Stretton, a range of postcards specifically of Church Stretton for the customers that kept requesting them. I wished to get the sleepy little town nestled in the foothills of The Long Mynd whilst it was indeed sleepy. So at the crack of bird call one glorious morning, health actually allowing me out of bed. I got into Church Stretton just as the sun was rising. I managed to get to the school playing fields just as the sun was coming up over the Stretton Hills. It was lovely to watch it rise and I captured a full set of dawn shots that really show how wonderful Stretton is at first light. Then made a great mistake. I'm blaming my Fibro/ME fog! I took my tripod lock of the base of the camera during the pictures, my hands & fingers were not working well enough to unlock the clips on the tripod. So I could not use that and had to balance the camera on a wall. Removing the tripod lock giving me a solid, wider base.

What did I do after I had finished taking the sunrise? Well, drove off to get the next shots of course. It wasn't till about an hour later I realised hang on where is the bit that locks into the tripod. So back I had to traipse to all the places I had been and retrieve said piece of equipment, these locks are not cheap so I didn't want to lose it! Luckily there it was on the wall where I had left it. Having added another hour or so to a supposed two-hour sojourn. Needless to say, a sleep was in order when I got back home before editing material could commence. However, for a change, it had been a good morning. I do love a good day, to capture a sunrise is a moment in time I do love to achieve they are all magical! Sadly I don't get to capture as many as I would like.
