After a near two hour drive and a further 35 minute hike up the side of Twisleton, my dismay was complete as I was walking across the Limestone Pavement with light rain being thrust into my face by a strong breeze. To make matters worse, this was coming from the direction that the sun was going to rise.
Not to be too disheartened and knowing how the elements can break even for just a few minutes, I set up the camera where I wanted to be in the hope that should the elements favour me then at least I would be ready.
Compose, meter for the available light, apply correct filters … wipe filters … wait … meter again … wipe filters … wait even more … this continuous circle ensued for at least half an hour. Then suddenly the rain spots began to get much lighter and eventually stopped altogether and the sun peek through a break in the distant cloud. My anticipation was palpable at this point.
After about another 30 minutes of frantic re-composing, filtering and shooting I started to think about a large cooked breakfast in the lovely town of Settle. My morning would then be complete!!!
