It’s All About Location…For Danger
Ok, as our featured image will prove, my brother and I returned yet again to Hermitage Castle and I thought It would be a great idea to hike a bit away and get a long shot of the structure from a distance (somewhat).
I walked away to the far end of the field, towards the boundary wall and found a flat bit of ground to stand, turning up my camera to more likeable settings, I looked down to adjust my footing for a more stable stance.
Noticing an odd pattern on the ground, the long grass that had been compressed had about seven to eight holes, roughly the size of a kids fists, I thought this was an odd pattern, possibly made by anything.
Only, as I shifted my feet and raised the camera to take my picture, I got the sounds of animals, but gone were the birds in the trees and the sheep in the fields as I could not help be drawn to one sound, a bunch of very loud, very pissed off hisses coming from my feet or more importantly what I was stood on.
Now I can safely say I am not a marathon runner but I can say I looked like one with how quick I moved from that spot, you always hear how the perfect shot needs the perfect location, well turns out I had neither.
