The Humber Estuary.

The Humber Estuary.

So last night I popped out with the Mrs to the Humber Estuary to see if I could get any decent photos of the bridge at sunset.  I'm pretty happy with the photographs I captured but perhaps next time I'll wait around a bit longer for it to get darker. I think my next mission is to capture a foreshore area with a long shutter speed so I get that movement effect from the body of water.

I chose to shoot at the estuary because it is such an important landmark to the surrounding area. It has been used for shipping for decades. Ports along the Humber include, Kingston upon Hull, Grimsby, Immingham and Killingholme. Although the Humber is only an estuary in today's world, in past ice ages when sea levels were much lower, the estuary had a long freshwater course, it flowed across where the North Sea is now. Just a little bit of history there, sorry, I couldn't resist! Sometimes I feel like it makes it more worth while photographing something if you know it's history, it gives it a little more significance. 

Until next time guys! AdiĆ³s!
