hhhmmmm, Ok bad title but I’m that busy getting ready for Skye and my ABIPP accreditation I think I fried my brain so it’s the first thing that came to me…
Not quite sure what the old stones were for but to the left of shot and further up the reservoir is the Derwent Dam scene of the Dambuster practice runs
“ Derwent reservoir was used by the RAF’s Dambusters to practise their low level flying techniques during 1943, in preparation for delivering Barnes Wallis’ famous ‘bouncing bombs’ to German dams. Located in the West Tower of the Derwent Valley Dam is the Derwent Dam (617 Squadron) Museum which houses a collection of memorabilia dedicated to the famous Dams Raid carried out by 617 “Dambusters” Squadron)”
Anyway back to the shot, as usual wellies on, knee deep in water/mud and sinking fast the symmetry was screening at me for a shot and I couldn’t refuse, I loved the reflection and lines of the stones, the dramatic skies adding to the composition, earphone pumping out some tunes, what a place.
Did some tutoring there Tuesday and even though it was dreary and damp it didn’t disappoint, Derwent always has an abundance of lines and reflections that always appear new to me. A place you have to keep returning to.
Stormy’s training class tonight, we had to stand in the naughty corner last week…..don’t ask!, needless to say I have been working hard training her this week so hopefully she will perform with perfection.
