First of all, as is my usual protocol, I'll welcome Sue, a newcomer to the followers list, enjoy your stay and feel free to make a comment anytime you like.
It's always a pleasure spending time with my sons and tonight my middle son joined me and brother in law from next door on an evening's photoshoot on the bank of the River Humber and although chilly, it was a beautiful night, a slight easterly breeze, very high, very thin cloud and black as the hobs of hell!
The location was North Ferriby, west of the Humber Bridge on the north bank at a little country park, one of many dotted round the area and which sits on a footpath along which you can walk for many miles along the Humber Bank in reasonable comfort on well tended paths. On summer's days, it is such a pleasant experience. Flora and fauna abound and there is always activity of one sort or another on or near the river or in the air.
The Humber Bridge was well lit against the dark background and the lights from the various industries on the south bank of the Humber (North Lincolnshire) were very clearly visible. The tide was out and on some of the pictures, you can see the reflections on the muddy shore and although not clear, sand bars in the middle of the river were showing.
As a bonus, someone in North Ferriby let off three Chinese Lanterns into the air as I was taking the picture looking northwards towards the village (the church spire is clearly visible) and I love how it's turned out - my favourite shot of the night.
All the pictures were taken with a Canon 40D on a tripod at various bulb exposures using a 17mm to 85mm zoom lens and a remote control to reduce blurring through camera shake. You can click on any of the pictures to enlarge them.
Have a great weekend
