Bolton Abbey

Article text
The classic view of Bolton Abbey in the Yorkshire Dales features this row of stepping stones across the River Wharfe. By visiting soon after sunrise I captured pleasing light on the ruined priory. The river was flowing quite fast after rain the previous day but the stepping stones were holding the water back just enough to create a still area upstream. Using a 10 stop neutral density filter enabled me to lengthen the exposure time to 30 seconds, which has blurred the water flowing between the stones and brought out the reflection of the priory.
