Dartford Crossing


Photo Information
One of the tall ships bidding farewell to London at the end of the Easter weekend. A rare time when I find the 55-300mm lacking. It's fantastic on the K1 in decent light, but come evening, it visibly holds the camera back at higher ISO, even as little as 800.

It's a fantastic picture though, whatever you may say about the mechanics othe lens. That yellow streak in the sky couldn't be better placed had you ordered it in advance.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

How curious that the bridge seems to have its own yellow/grey sky. I was quite baffled at first by this anomaly, looking at the thumbnail. Even after opening it up, I thought I was looking at two half-frames of a film strip. Or am I the only one?

That's a cracking combination of mood and a blazing sky. So dramatic.

Thank you all for the comments, it was a very lucky gap in the clouds; it did take a bit of re-positioning along the bank to get it perfectly aligned with the bridge
