So Beautiful David. How did you meter for this shot?
Thanks Winston, from the reflected light as I always do….

I never realised that the sun sets over the sea up there! (I guess the coast curves round a bit in places?) I though Hunstanton in Norfolk was the only place on the east coast where you could watch the sun set :) (ps lovely sunset btw)
Well you learn something new every day Steve! ;-) It surprised me too but because of the curve in the coastline it is possibly as shown here. You can also capture it further down the NE coast but only at certain times of the year. Thanks for the comment
This is magnificent! I have been to Bamburgh beach several times and think it is the cleanest in England, but only in the morning or the afternoon. We have always aimed to be home by nightfall. Now I know what I have been missing!
Thanks very much for the kind words and support, it’s a wonderful place at anytime of day or night!
Thank you very much Tom
Beautiful image, well shot and composed.
Thank you for the kind words Paul, appreciated
Beautiful sunset David, gorgeous light!
Thank you very much Martin, I just hope that the light and weather is kind to me next month! LOL
Beautiful golden tones David with just a sliver of blue struggling for display in the water as the setting sun colours the scene in a temporary wash of gold. The hits of reflection in the wet sand are superb.
Thanks for the detailed comment Stuart, it’s the hints of reflection which attract my eyes too.
Thanks very much for the comment
that is just amazing, killer light without question here
Thank you very much John, appreciated
