Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Circle II (Advanced Editing V)
Camera: Canon EOS-5D
Lens: Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L USM
Location: Peak District National Park
Date: Mar 6, 2007
Aperture: f13
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/50
Date Uploaded: Mar 6, 2007

Ladybower Reservoir, Peak District National Park.
One of the overflows at dusk.

I placed the camera on the tripod, fully extended, then held the whole lot as high in the air as I could to get the angle on the overflow. This is only one of about 5 occasions I've ever seen water going over in the last 15 years. Its usually several feet below this level, but the wet winter has filled the reservoirs this year.

Thanks for all the comments, and Yanko - very little chance ;-)

Cool! Do they have warning signs for unsuspecting canoeists, or do they simply disappear?? Lovely warm light.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

My first thought: Whoa.. where the hell is that?!

Firstly I think your horizon is tilted just a wee bit. I probably only notice that though, because I've been staring at it for a few minutes, heh.

I'm not sure what the area was like, but I'm curious what the shot would have looked like a few steps to the left and facing more of the green hills that are on the right side. I'm not sure what the triangle shaped object is on the lower right. Would it have interferred with getting more of those hills in the shot?

This is definately something I would try getting tons of shots of. It's not something you see very often, and it has a lot of potential. I think a few minutes earlier you could have gotten a stronger warm glow on those rightside hills and maybe used a quicker shutter speed to freeze the water a bit more.

Like I said though, I think there's a ton of options with this location. Very interesting.
