Colourful sunset – Weston Super Mare

The sky looked active and promising for a good sunset this evening so risked the rush hour traffic and got to the sea front in time to see the sun nearing its setting – lighting up the Wheel and casting strong shadow on the ugliest new building in the town.

Sunset on the wheel-3440Turning around to face the sun the view was beautiful – a lone runner made a good focus for this shot. Thanks to the A1 CameraClubWeston – a tip I learned was to close down the aperture to f22 to get the modest starburst effect.

Turn back towards the town and the gathering clouds loomed and glowed.

Turn again towards the “sea” and the reflections caught my attention for the next image to make.

Showing again how it always pays to look behind you when photographing a sunset 🙂

A dedicated photographer of the environment, weather, landscape and its inhabitants, I have assembled a collection of awe-inspiring images for this exhibition. Many in colour, but a number in black & white - a medium which suits my love of the dramatic in photography. Starting from these photographs, I have produced linocuts and woodcuts as well as sculptures in wood. Each of these inspired by what is seen on my many walks in the region and beyond. A passionate experimenter, I am enjoying working with antique cameras and alternative photographic processes to make images that are more about conveying feeling, emotion, memory than they are about being a pixel perfect record of a moment in in time.
