Sunsets

Category : Uncategorized

One evening recently I went to Trebarwith Strand to catch a sunset. This is a popular place for sunset images because of the rocky path leading to the beach and “Gull Rock”, the island just offshore. Being early in the year, there was a heavy sea running giving spray over the rocks and the tide was high, well up to the top of the path. As I sat with the camera on the tripod, I watched the mist on the horizon rising to meet the setting sun and I was groaning inside, thinking it was going to ruin the sunset.

MGDH-Trebarwith-6032I took several shots anyway and when I got back home to process them I was very pleased with how they had come out. The image here has since been printed large on canvas and is now hanging on the wall at home (click on the image to see a larger version). Another image from the evening became the April landscape wallpaper 🙂

It was quite a challenge, watching the rising tide and making sure the camera (and I) stayed dry.

Eventually the light faded completely and it was time to retire to the local hostelry to enjoy a very good hot meal to warm up again.

While there, I got chatting to some of the other photographers who were also there for the sunset, including Russell Wilcox of Landscapes of Cornwall. Swapping e-mails afterwards led to a workshop opportunity and I will be sharing some of the results of that soon! Thanks for your time, Russell. If you get the chance, do check out his images and the workshops he runs.
