Back home the other weekend on a lazy sunday afternoon and the light was looking good, headed out to a location I always enjoy shooting, its nothing spectacular but its one I found by having a wonder and I know when I go there I’ll be the only the only photographer.
Making this shot work was all about including the cliff shape on the left side of the frame, getting an interesting foreground to draw the viewer in, motion in the water and some cool colours in the sky. With these kind of sunsets you can never tell if the best colours will be at this point or if they will keep building into the twilight – on this occassion it just faded away as the sun passed the horizon, always hang around though – I’ve made the mistake of leaving a location only to look back from the car park at the incredible twilight colours behind!
Balancing the brightness of the sky with the land is a 0.9 Neutral Density Graduated filter, also used was a 6 stop ND to prolong the exposure and blur the sea, they make a 10 stop filter but I’m not ready for that yet…
Please do leave a comment so I know someone other than my mum reads these!
