No waterfall, No problem


Like many of you, photography is a loved passion of mine. But at this moment I can’t pursue it full-time. So I’m sat there looking through the magazines at the adverts for photography trips around the world. Some of the far off place’s on my list are going to cost me many thousands of pounds.

Practice at a few different locations then, when I’m ready and have a full porfolo of natural and urban long exposure moving water shots. Only then will I look to spending the money on the trips. For now, this small weir on the River Nene in Northamptonshire will do until I find a new location. I’m looking…..
