Sunderland Point, near Lancaster, UK
Taken for active assignment weekly: Three's Company.
What it took:
Walking 2 miles down to Sunderland Point and risking getting caught by the tide ( the tide often covers the only road into the hamlet at high tide.). Finding a compositiion that showed all three boats, but kept the tripod shadow out of shot.
I used a an ND4 grad to darken the sky and used a long exposure, as
the light was getting thin.
The bright light coming from the left rear is from a street light. .
Sunderland means "cut-off land", and the name points to the fact that it is cut off by the tide at high tides. Sunderland point was a busy port up until the end of the 18th century and was largely involved in the slave trade, as can be attested by Sambo's Grave. Toward the end of the 18th century it's popularity waned and now all that remains is a tiny hamlet on a lonely windswept peninsula.
