I took an evening stroll along the sea front at Yarmouth, to capture the Britannia pier during the blue hour.
As the temperature took a tumble in the evening, it wasn’t long before I started to feel the cold, so it was on with the extra layers to keep me warm, a good job I did as my timing for the arrival at the pier was a hour to early, mind you they say its best to arrive at your destination early, that gave me plenty of time to set up.
Once I set up it wasn’t long before the light began to change to a nice warm colour, then it was out with the tripod, I sat and waited for the blue hour.
Armed with my Nikon D-300 with a 24-70mm Nikon lens this worked great as I haven’t used this camera in a long time. After about 30 mins the pier started to light up and it started to get darker and the exposers got longer and after I had taken a few images it was time to call it a day, pack up and drive back to my accommodation, take in a whiskey or two to warm up
For the short time I was there I had a good time, and it was great to get more use out of my tripod as I don’t often carry this piece of equipment with me, I use to find it an inconvenience and in the way, this is a great tool to have in your arsenal as it stops u rushing about and grab at pictures, at least it gives you more time to compose the final image.
