Storm Over Bratley View
The New Forest Landscape Photography
Stormy Evening Over Bratley View - A bit of a different shot taken from Bratley View in The New Forest.
Usually its obligatory to shoot the Isolated Scots pine tree located at the car park but I wanted somthing different.
A heavy rain cloud was rolling in from the west at sunset, and this was the only shot I managed to get before the heavens opened and I had to fight to get my kit packed away before my camera bag became filled with rain!
The composition was tough going here as I was surrounded by dead bracken. I decided that instead of shooting using the rule of thirds, I'd try using the sun, the tree in the distance and the points of the dead bush to form a 'triangle'. I quite liked how it came out.
