Now has a sister shot - Expiring Light.
As this shot has got more faves than nearly all my other shots combined, I thought I'd give a bit more detail...
I am very pleased with the way it turned out, as I did actually plan it (also its sibling) - as I was walking along the beach, the Sun was breaking through across the sea, which was pretty stunning in itself, but I noticed the clouds were moving the rays towards the pier, so hared along the beach to be in the right place when they reached it. I even planned which bit would look best highlighted, so chose the very skeletal rollercoaster track.
Honesty forces me to concede a more than normal amount of post-production as well, there are all manner of channel mixer / curves and levels adjustments going on, and a lot of masking to highlight each different area of the picture in the best way.
But I suppose it's telling that it required all of luck, planning and technical tweaking to get me this many faves! :o)
Thanks for your comments!
