Weve included some of Tim Gambles stunning pictures prior to, and I instantly became a fan of his work. Luckily, Tim was kind adequate to share the details of the shot with DIYP, as well as some backstory that will make you grab your electronic camera and go out and shoot.

As it ends up, Mr. David Plummers story got Tim moving and he wound up recording one of his favorite images. Its one of the most wonderful images Ive seen recently, too! Tim states that he has actually gone back to the location often times given that he took this shot, but he has actually never once again seen the spillway overflowing.
“The very first long exposure shot I captured was mainly blue in color, as there werent any clouds in the sky reflecting off the surface,” Tim discusses. Tim states that he has returned to the place many times considering that he took this shot, but he has actually never again seen the spillway overflowing.
” This was all I needed to hear, so I packed up my video camera gear and off I went,” Tim describes. “I had not bagged my 365 project shot for that day so it was the best chance to get something.” He decided to check out a spillway at the bottom end of the Torside Reservoir in the Peak District. “Its sweeping curved lines differ from anything I have actually ever seen before. When the water level reaches a particular height, over it goes.”
Other than enjoying these splendid photos, I think theres a moral in Tims story too.
As soon as he was pleased with the structure, he screwed the filter on as he knew the water would look sublime during a long direct exposure. “I cant remember the settings on the manual Samyang lens however it was a 1-minute direct exposure at ISO 200,” Tim describes.
” I was sat on my backside disputing whether or not to head out on this particular night,” Tim tells DIYP. “I d decided I couldnt be troubled, when a chap came on The One Show called David Plummer,” Tim discusses that Plummer is a wildlife professional photographer who has actually been diagnosed with Parkinsons illness. Sadly, due to the fact that of the diagnosis, he isnt sure the length of time he has actually left doing what he loves.
The photo that caught my eye on Facebook is pink. However, its not the only beautiful shot Tim took that day. “The very first long exposure shot I caught was primarily blue in color, as there werent any clouds in the sky showing off the surface,” Tim discusses. “I liked what I saw on the back of the electronic camera and noted some clouds were inbound and beginning to catch some light from the setting sun.”
Other than taking pleasure in these stunning pictures, I believe theres a moral in Tims story too. Do not procrastinate permanently, as times and scenarios modification. Load your equipment and go out and shoot it.
” Ten minutes passed, the clouds had moved into position above us and the sun was lighting up the underside of them a wonderful golden color. This was assessing the end of the spillway and I understood with a longer exposure the water above would rely on glass and capture the glorious colors.”
” I had actually shot this feature of the tank years previously but a lot broader,” Tim tells DIYP. “But I selected this event, precariously stabilized on the steep embankment, it would look far more interesting zoomed in at 50mm.”
“I still struggle with bouts of laziness with the cam but his story always stuck with me as did this wonderful night in the Peak District,” Tim says. “I do hope Mr. P is still healthy and well sufficient to go out taking pictures” he concludes. I sure hope so, too!
I hope that youve liked Tims pictures as much as I did. Ensure to have a look at more of his deal with Flickr.
