Fen Landscape 36 – Rampton

Today, on the edge of Rampton Wood, the reeds (Phragmites) waving, shimmering and rustling in Cottenham Lode made the gusty wind from the west visible and audible, something alive.  I thought about all those long exposure photographs that turn moving water into mist and wondered if I could do the same with the reeds.  The best my camera (Canon G1X) could manage was 1/10th second at f 16 with ISO 100.  Not surprisingly, the result was unsatisfactory.  Must put ND filters (and sticky tape) on the Christmas list.
