Looking out of the window this morning I could see a bank of cloud to the North and clear skies towards the South with the boundary right above us. Guessing that the sunrise might illuminate the cloud bank from below I headed out with my camera and enjoyed a gloriously lit morning sky. #sunrise
After the beautiful, peaceful sunset yesterday – today the southerly wind rushes in at over 40MPH. The tide is one of the highest of the year, so I ventured to see what was happening around Birnbeck – answer? Not as much as I had hoped – the wind was very strong but really only succeeded in flattening any waves. This the best shot of the morning. But with such murky colours I think a monochrome rendition is needed –
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.
Turning 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 🙂
Westhay nature reserve near Glastonbury is a beautiful place – more so at the start and end of the day when the light and atmosphere is changing in exciting ways.
No sign of the recent Osprey, nor the Bearded reedlings. A short-lived view of a kingfisher and an encounter with a Roe Deer was the extent of the wildlife encountered this morning. Clearly Autumn is here and enforcing its presence in more visible and tangible ways.
Clevedon Pier viewed from Layde Bay at beach level. A windy day at high tide. I love the way black & white creates such drama. – Fuji XT20, 18-55mm, Polarising filter, shot in RAW processed in Silver FxPro2 – Fine Art option with a red filter applied.
