"Royal Skies Over La Corbière " by 

This shot is ‘AS IS’ without manipulation.

Every time we go to the island of Jersey, part of the channel islands between France and England, I like to take photos of this marvelous place. For those of you who know me, It is my mission to always try to capture a unique shot of this lovely lighthouse. This time I tried a much longer exposure of the sky. The evening was the perfect for this type of shot. There were fabulous clouds in the sky and there was also a strong wind moving them, not to mention the beautiful colour in the sky. I waited till nearly all the light was gone in order to expose it for a long period. I used my ND and ND graduated filters to help me get a longer exposure. I made my way down the cliff side to get a wonderful angle. Using my filters and camera settings, I captured the lovely movement of the clouds and the magical and royal purple colour of the sunset that filled the sky, and the again royal blues of the sea below. What a majestic view. Please enjoy this by viewing it large.

Primarily a landscape photographer, my enjoyment of taking photos has developed from a young age. Originally from Texas, I now live in England and am surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery. I enjoy outdoor activities such as climbing, hiking, and camping. I am blessed with a wonderful wife and three terrific children. I am a strong Christian and I believe that my love of photography and any talent I posses in capturing images comes from God.

    Wow ands wow again! What a fantastic shot, love the colour of the sky and how it has moved over the long exposure. Always wanted to have a go at this but never had. Super shot and a fave.

  • That is such an awesome compliment my friend. It is those filters that help to bring out the colour of the sky and that help to give a longer exposures. I too have always wanted to take a shot like this and now I have. I appreciate the fave.
