I often see many photographs of all types of genres packed to the boarders with props etc etc. And due to breaking a couple of bones (note to self- check step ladder stable before climbing up!) I have been experimenting with simple compositions that are local to me.
The conditions were superb with a temperature around -3, and just about an hour after sunrise. The light was soft and had pinkishblue tones to complement the frost.
Camera settings were iso 100, f16, 1/30th and I used a polarising filter with a 0.3 soft grad just to balance the sky/foreground a bit. Drive set to 2sec delay, and tripod. Lens was my trusted 28-105mm f4 USM.
