Going Home


Rye, East Sussex.
June 2011.


In the distance day was dawning
Comes to me the early morning
Something tells me that I'm going home

The brand new sun shines bright
From the darkness fields of light
Something tells me that I'm going home

Soft the rain is gently falling
Lightly 'cross the city morning
I get the feeling that I'm going home

(Runrig - Going Home)




This is the last picture from my recent trip to England that I'm going to post. I haven't taken many pictures, and no long exposures at all. The next time I visit England, I'll go by car so I can get more out of my stay. There's a great many places I haven't visited since I've got the 5D Mark II.
I'd love to spend a whole week camping in Dartmoor, going hiking in the daytime and taking long exposures at night. I might visit Dartmoor during this year's winter break.

Love this photo. Totally envious of your camera. And your future plans sound awesome!

Thank you! I've got the battery pack and most of the time I'm using a 16-35mm lens - great for landscape photography and long exposures - the downside is that it's rather heavy and hence not very comfortable for a stroll around the city - I recommend getting a good camera backpack.

There are so many places I want to sit when Paul and I make it to England next year. I should probably start making a list... or a map of some kind

Dominic Doherty said...

And you do have to show me your list so I can add some more places to it! :-)

Camping on Dartmoor in winter sounds like a byword for discomfort, although if it is snowy it could be amazing.

Well, I'd go camping in the summer or autumn. If I go during the winter, I'll stay at a B&B.
