Dovestones Reservoir

I was pleased to have a quick walk around Dovestone Reservoir on Saddleworth Moor near Manchester a couple of weekends ago.  It was one of those early spring days when the wind is low, the sun is out and the clouds are moving slowly.  The long exposure worked well here to emphasise the reflections in the water, and the slow moving clouds made dream-like.

In 2013 we travelled to New Zealand for the first (and, so far, only) time.  The North island was fantastic, but I fell in love with the South Island.  I took this shot in the five minutes I had on the top of Roy’s Peak where a helicopter had landed whilst the pilot let us have a quick look round.  I ran around like a headless chicken, camera and tripod on my shoulder looking to capture as many views as possible.  I think this is my favourite.  I hope you like it.
