Ethereal

I think this probably takes the prize for the hardest light I've ever had to try and capture. Taken from Doyden Point, near Port Quin on the National Trust coastline, the combination of low, drifting mist and cloud and a bright sun low on the horizon made for a tricky combo.

 

In the end, I made do with taking lots of exposures and picked the best of them when I got home! The composition was automatic as soon as I saw this curving wall, covered in thrift...then it was just a case of lining it up with the curve of the coastline and pulling the trigger.
