Family Portrait in Northumberland at Rothbury

A few weeks ago I did a family portrait in Northumberland. We went to the riverside at Rothbury which was absolutely glorious. It did mean that I was trying to find some shade to avoid harsh shadows. There wasn't much shade but we managed and here are a few of the shots that I got. There was also a massive tail back on the A1 past Morpeth so we all arrived about half an hour late! This meant that the sun wasn't as harsh but the 2 year old was more tired than he would've been.

Rothbury Riverside, Sun Sparkling on the Water

I was working at the weekend, doing a family photo shoot at Rothbury riverside. I managed to get a quick shot of the sun sparkling on the water for my 52 weekends project.

In this picture I have enhanced the blue tones and cropped the forground out to concentrate on the water and landscape behind. I applied a softening effect which makes the colours even stronger. It also gives a dreamlike quality to the picture.
