We met at 3pm next to the daffodil fields. Cold, windy and grey; not the best conditions for photographing rows of daffodils. The main guy wanted sun so didn’t turn up, the second had to get back to work. Me, the third, not wanting to waste the journey drove the 10 minutes to Godrevy. A friend has loaned me a D800 and 14-24 f.8 lens. How lucky am I? However, I only use it for 5 minutes. I am scared of dropping it on the rocks so I take it back to the car. If I’m going to have an accident I’d rather be using my own gear. It is dull, very overcast and earlier had looked as if it was going to snow but a few streaks of pink appear in the sky, only for about 15 minutes though, and I wait another 40 minutes for the sunset but the pink has disappeared and been replaced with dark cloud.
I think I may have been too heavy on the sky. Still, not bad though, especially as I went out to photograph daffodils.
