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.
There are many different programs out there that help you process your images, and Topaz have been on the market now for a few years. I remember a wave of excitement and personally some ‘eye-rolling’, as a wave of rather over processed images accompanying it hit camera clubs and the internet, just like the overuse of Nik Software and other plugins. Yet this is not to say that software, when used subtly, can reduce your workload...
If your weekends are anything like mine, a ‘shopping’ trip with the other-half will include a boyish high street meander into the Apple shop. Far from the computer shops I remember from my youth, its sleek aluminium staircases beckon you into the future, away from inevitable phone fiddling in the foyer of H&M at least.
Would you like to buy a new retina Macbook Pro? Expensive aren’t they especially with all...
