Photograph of The Road Home by Alex Nichol

The Road Home

I can't recall exactly where this was taken, but it was somewhere along the A66 on our way back from the Alpacaly Ever After near Bassenthwaite, Cumbria.

The late evening sun was so dramatic, it was probably a little too much for my camera to cope with, and would have benefited from a graduated ND filter. Sadly, I didn't have one with me, so this was the best I could do.

This picture was taken with my Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and the extraordinary Canon 35 mm f/1.4 L II USM .
