Another shot from the inlet a bit after Stormy Textures at sunset. Was worried there wouldn’t be any colour for a while but mother nature is often unpredictable and the stormy clouds cleared slightly and lit up magically for me.


  1. Canon 40D, 10-22mm EF-S. FL: 13 mm
  2. 1/13th of a second @ f11, ISO 100
  3. Cokin ND8 (3 Stop) Graduated Filter
  4. Adobe Lightroom 3 & Adobe Photoshop CS4

Photography for me is an outlet, a way I can express myself through images rather than words. I look at the subjects I shoot from every possible angle that I can imagine and with the right light, the vision in my head becomes a reality. My passion for it began after high school and over the past several years it has become my release, my way of seeing from a different perspective..

    beautiful Alistair, the patterns in the foreground sand lead the eye in wonderfully and add a lot of depth to the shot, well done.

    Great capture Alistair. amazing sky and colour. The change in texture on the sand is interesting as well, I am assuming this was from the receding tide. Well done :)
