I love working a location. By that I mean coming back again and again, developing a compositional theme, understanding what light is needed to 'paint the scene' and lift the image beyond the ordinary.
In this case, I first scouted this location with Dave Tolcher and Joe Cornish several months before.
I have made a number of subsequent trial images, mostly during the middle of the day, developing the 'wreck theme'. Autumn dawn at low tide was called for to give the image the necessary light and I returned with Dave and Joe in the dark early one morning to make this image.
