This photo is As Is, straight from the camera
Whilst recently on holiday in North Yorkshire, I met up with very good friend, and fellow bubbler Paul McGuire for a morning shoot. We decided to take sunrise photos at Cayton Bay, near Scarborough, and only a short drive from where he and his family live. It was a very early start. I had to get up at 3:15 am in order to leave by 3:30 and meet up with Paul by 3:50, and then drive, park and hike down to the beach for that magic half hour before sunrise at 4:35. As the colour in the sky started to intensify, the magic began. The tide began moving in and washing across the stones, as the patterns in the sand are covered over by the red tide. Though it is hard to get up so early, it is so worth it when you have mornings like this. What a great time we had and to once again meet up with my friend.
