And since I mentioned it, yes, I did take this filter to the Lake District! Though not to appear to mimic every photographer ever, tried out my new filter on the River Brathay – which, by the way, is worth a visit!
Perfect if you’ve got your favourite landscape lens, these circular threaded filters are available in this format or ‘rugged’, which I imagine is great for colder conditions, particularly if wearing gloves! Of course the advantage of any square filter in an adapter ring is that you need only buy one filter for use with all of your lenses. If, like me, you find your equipment changes (you can read why here), or you feel like using a different lens, you’ll end up buying various sizes of the same filter – by which time you may as well have invested in the larger format. If you don’t feel the need to filter stack however, you may be perfectly comfortable in sticking with the trusty circular format – quicker to set up, quicker to clean, and easier to store, just because some photographers favour Lee, it doesn’t mean you have to!

I love them so much, I have two…
ND1000 filters block ten stops of light from entering your lens; the glass is so dark, you can’t see through them
