It was frosty

Not a 4 star!

PHOTOGRAPHING THE BORE

Quite simply, until you get your prints back from the processor you will not know whether you were successful or not, [unless you have a digital camera]. Many of you will be disappointed for the bore is not easy to capture. Far better to watch it and hold the magic moment in your memory. Don't climb down the bank to water level, you will get wet and could be swept away! The best results were taken against

the light, not easy, unless your camera has manual exposure.


The best photograph taken is not of the big bore, but just a shot of a medium sized one, its all a question of that lucky shot.
