Usk Reservoir

Day 2 of my car being serviced and repaired at the garage so I borrowed my wife’s car and drove out to the hills west of Usk Reservoir. On my way to the slight hill overlooking the reservoir, a rather old and gnarled fence post caught me eye.

As a slight aside, it may interest you to know that this is a “Worm’s Eye” image – the tripod legs were splayed out on the ground to emphasis the fence and get it to break the horizon. Here are some comparison shots:

I left the fence and crossed boggy ground to get to a slight rise that looked down onto Usk Reservoir. I set the camera up, held onto the tripod to stop it being blown over and waited for a brief patch of sun.

And with that, my time was up and I had to get Paula’s car back to her so she could go to work.
