Deanhead (3 images)

Gratuitous drone imagery below!

I headed up to Marsden Moor a couple of mornings ago hoping to capture some aerial shots of the early morning light on the rocks at Buckstones Edge. It was bright and sunny at home but twenty minutes up the road I pulled into the carpark in a total whiteout. I put the drone up but even at four hundred feet above me there was nothing to see!

So, I headed back with visibility improving the closer I got to home. Stopping and retracing my steps (tyre tracks?)  I found it was not improving along the Edges so with domestic responsibilities waiting I headed back.

I did stop part way home, whilst still out on the moors, and had another try. This was slightly more successful although the files did need a bit more work than usual to make them fit for posting.  This was partly down to the conditions and partly down to the fact I’d set the exposure to minus one EV by mistake and hadn’t noticed until it was too late!
