Some fun on the North Devon coast, a clear night turned into a little cloud cover. This was shot half an hour past sunset, but there was still lots of colour on the horizon to reflect off the rocks and headland... North Devon, England.
Great light Dave, the afterglow on the foreground rocks adds a lot to the depth of the image. I like too how the shadows in the cliffs deepen as they recede. I’m sure would look even better on a darker background, allowing some of the deeper shadows to pop.
Ian - it’s a superb beach, with all manner of possibilities, which i know could yield some superb images throughout the season. St Catherine’s is like a small Scottish mountain, in fact I feel the whole image reminds me of Elgol on Skye in a strange way.
Sam - thank you, it’s such a beautiful part of the country, but it takes some looking to find anything new. I’m going to be heading up to North Devon over the next month on a semi regular basis. I’m running a weekend Light and Land workshop in Cornwall on the 28th Sept 2012 if you are interested.

If like me you have been plagued with cheap sluggish memory sticks and convinced they are a poor idea, then here's the answer...
Have a look at these forward images and examine the way they will been processed. I'm not asking you to like one over the other three, in fact I'm going to explain their individual merits, but for now examine all of them and look deeper into the balance of colours.
Camera - Canon 6DIR - 665nm conversion so it adds a certain amount of colour (much harder in a 720nm conversion), the perfect starting point for IR colour conversions....
