Burning Desire

"For most people, we often marvel at the beauty of a sunrise or the magnificence of a full moon, but it is impossible to fathom the magnitude of the universe that surrounds us."


The next in the series from mine and my daughters early morning trip to Brighton.

For a change from my usual wide angle shot I stuck on my 70-300 and zoomed right in to get this shot of the sun rising just above the end of Brighton pier.

This was very hard to expose for as I didn't want to darken the water surrounding the pier too much.

I took this from near the west pier and whilst we was there a middle aged couple where sitting there with a picnic to watch the sun rise together (how romantic).

My camera was on my tripod and fired via cable release and I underexposed by 1 stop to silhoutte the pier as much as possible.

More to come :)


Thankyou for all your amazing comments, views and favs it means loads to me.
