MMX: Derwent Jetty

Taken in September, this image of the jetty on Derwent Water must have been taken a million times before by a million people. That however in itself is not a reason to ignore the chance of a picture when it comes. There is always something new in a picture, no matter how many times that particular object or area has been captured before on film or digital. Rather than a straight forward landscape shot, I wanted to try and capture some geometric movement in this image using the jetty to push the viewer out further across the water. The sky was overcast, but for a couple of seconds a shaft of sunlight hit the last quarter of the wooden planking of the pier and it was this that provided the unique part of the image. Taken with an Olympus E-30.
