This session didn't start off well, because as soon as I arrived I realised I'd left behind my remote shutter release. So I was stuck with having to manually hold down the shutter throughout each long exposure. I actually surprised myself with the sharpness of the results, considering my hands were getting colder throughout. I thank my tripod for its sturdiness, rather than any zen-like ability of mine to not move a muscle.
Anyway, this is from the banks of the River Severn from Garden Cliff, looking towards Arlingham on the other side.

Happy new year 2012
