Field Notes

This was one of those rare moments of light that lasted no more than 30 seconds and caught me a little by surprise. A bank of cloud sat out to sea in the east killing my chances of a glorious sunrise sky and I was sat wondering whether I should pack up and go back to bed (this being early summer) when suddenly the cloud parted, momentarily, and allowed this intense quality of light flood onto the castle and landscape around me. I had to dash up the sand to some rocks for my foreground, hurriedly drop the tripod, attach the camera, compose, check exposure, aperture and focus point and shoot. Barely a couple of frames were made before the light switched off and went into heavy cloud for the rest of the day.
