Ave­bury is pre­dom­i­nantly a widean­gle lens lo­ca­tion, per­haps close-in with the stones tow­er­ing over you, us­ing long ex­po­sures to al­low the clouds to blur through the shot. My go-to lens is the Nikon 24-70mm.


A se­lec­tion of fil­ters is handy: a po­lariser for elim­i­nat­ing haze, bright­en­ing blue skies and adding con­trast, and a Lee Fil­ters Big or Su­per Stop­per to achieve long ex­po­sures to blur move­ment in the clouds.


It goes with­out say­ing that a tri­pod is vi­tal when us­ing fil­ters to shoot long ex­po­sures and when shoot­ing in low-light con­di­tions. For­tu­nately you don’t have far to walk so you won’t need to lug it around for too long.
