Seeing the Light
A Feel for Light
I'm aware I'm trespassing. We've just pulled into a lay-by and I'm now walking deeper into the all-enveloping woods; private property, I think. But this is not any old land; this is the Balmoral Estate, the private residence of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The yellow and red sovereign's flag fluttering above the castle just down the road told us that she's in residence, as we drove along Deeside. I now have a surreal vision of being accosted in the woods by a monarch in her ceremonial gown and crown. The prospect of years of incarceration in the Tower crosses my mind, as I search for the perfect spot to extend the tripod legs. Still, it will be worth it, because this shoot looks promising.
