From Sunday; I had the pleasure of actually setting up my tripod and 7D with 17-85 zoom on. I had the further fun of using my Cokin grad ND filters to cope with the relatively bright sunset sky. I use a little Infra-Red remote to trigger the shutter (£5 from ebay and utterly reliable) and with mirror-lockup engaged and my solid Manfrotto tripod, all is nicely still and steady!
This is the beach at Seamills near Ardrossan and the magnificent mountains across the Clyde are the Arran hills including Goat Fell. From various parts of the Clyde coast, these hills are known as the “sleeping warrior” and I love them!
