After yesterday's quick shot on the way to town, I decided to return this morning to spend more time on assessing the location and choosing the right field of view. Yesterday I photographed at 35mm which is a fairly wide angle but today I went for a much narrower view, the overhanging trees look beautiful and by going to 135mm it gave a much more intimate feel.
I decided to shoot wide open at f2 with the Zeiss 135mm, a fantastic lens. Focusing on the barrier throws foreground and background out of focus, a really nice effect. Today's shot has a completely different feel to it, mainly down to the lack of direct sunlight, I was only 5 minutes away from getting the sun streaming through but clouds rolled in as I was setting up, bugger. Today's view with yesterdays light would have been perfect, I shall return!
