Here’s a little aerial and fake model shot of the lovely town of Berwick-upon-Tweed. Snapped during my first try out of the DJI Phantom 3 Drone (which is fab). Shot taken in DNG and fiddled with in Lightroom. Being able to do this kinda stuff is getting me ever so excited. Plus I never had a RC plane when I was kid – just wind-up train sets.
So, I had a day off today and got up at 04:45 to walk down a crumbling cliff in the pitch darkness. Now I haven’t been scared of the dark since the age of 13 when a Motorhead poster fell on my face in the night and when I woke up I thought I had gone blind. Around the same time I spent about 40 minutes trying to fry an egg until I realised it was an apricot. Anyway. I got a bit scared today : Total dark / crumbling cliff / the boom of surf against rocks / slightly demonic looking sheep looming out of the darkness like cloven-footed furry clowns (yeah I know)…But I think it was worth it. A gorgeous morning. Glorious light. And this:
All I can say is, come to Berwickshire, it’s mighty fine. Fried apricots are good also.
