Today we had a trip to Goudhurst and a look around before the rain came, did a tour of St Mary's church but will leave that for another day as we showed a church yesterday. As it rained we headed for Tunbridge Wells but there were still hordes of shoppers about spending money that they are not supposed to have. Anyway we left them to it and came back via Yalding where I used to have a Garage many moons ago.
We parked up after the rain had stopped to look around the weir.
We arrived to find two canoeists playing about on the river between the weir and the bridge so I set up to watch the activity from the weir with my tripod as the light was fading fast.
As I turned around the lights were already on in the Anchor and it was only 3pm, still onwards and upwards I was not going to miss any action.
Sure enough one of them came up to the weir where I was set up with the camera paddleling across with all his might. He actually looked at me as I took the shot.
Than it happened, he upended the Canoe and out he went!
I did not need to get a ND filter out of my bag, the light was fading so fast I didn't need one. I managed to get this creamy water shot that some folks rave about without a lot of effort.
Here's another one of the of the sluice gates with water cascading through it.
Then it was time to say goodbye to Yalding as it started to get quite dark.
That's the end of another eventful day.
Thanks for looking.
nite nite, luv Mike XX
