Thatcham Visitor Moorings.
It is very similar to the shot The Mission on the Canal. However, tonight’s image of the Thatcham Visitor Moorings is much more about the “Blue Hour”.
I was struck by the intensity of the blue in the sky. The new moon. The reflections. A perfect vision of tranquillity.
As you have probably gathered by now, this is my favourite kind of photograph. The camera sees so much more than the naked eye. With a bit of tweaking in Photoshop, the shadows can be balanced with the highlights, and the sheer beauty of God’s creation comes to life.
A passing train under the unconnected overhead power lines shows as a couple of white stripes. The colours in the trees are revealed. The deep blue is something that can only be seen between sundown and darkness.
The long exposure creates a tranquil scene. The water is completely smooth, the blue so intense.
Thatcham Visitor Moorings, Kennet & Avon Canal. The peace of the canals.
