The day was rather dull with rain forecast in the afternoon so I set off to Dartmoor to take some shots in some very ancient woodland before the weather deteriorated. As I drove along a stretch of the River Dart I was struck by the colour of the beech trees and the fast flowing river. I stopped the car, grabbed my gear and found a spot close to the old Holne Bridge over the Dart. There was light rain, a moderate breeze and rather flat, dull light. However, the vivid colour of the leaves more than compensated for the dark skies.
Using my tripod and a graduated filter to enhance the movement of the water I took several shots The road crossing the bridge was quite busy and I had to time my shots carefully to avoid capturing the moving vehicles in my images during the longish exposure. I got the image I wanted and continued my journey but heavy rain defeated my next objective and I got very wet in the process!
