'Storm Approaching Flamborough'
'Storm Approaching Flamborough'

This is one of my favourite places and has been since childhood.

A lot has been written recently about quiet light: images that are not made in the so called golden hour. In this particular case, the lower key light works for me. The other aspect that attracts me about this image is the feeling of being connected to the sea.

I very nearly was - the tide was coming in fast and I was determined to make the image without the guy who insisted on standing right next to the sea stack for 20 minutes (an occupational hazard of photography). Fortunately he went round the corner for 30 seconds and I was wearing wellies.

Technical Details - Linhof Technikardan, 125mm lens. Velvia 50. Scanned with an Epson V700.

Location: Flamborough, North Yorkshire
