From a few weeks back, the light for the Sunrise was a disappointment, so I started to look for things a little different, I decided on an extreme wide angle as close to the ground as I could muster.

Then gave it a mono treatment..for a change Wink

Another beauty Nick. The low angle and lens distortion creates a really powerful image.

I was a bit disappointed by Spurn when I went there earlier in the year. Some bits were lovely but other bits looked like a knackered council estate! I think the main cause of my disgruntlement was that after driving for two hours, I couldn't get a cup of tea!

Good choice of viewpoint , get them while you can as it gets more difficult to scrabble around on the ground as you get older.

No Howard its a HDR, I think 5 Images 1 stop apart (I would need to check) The main problem here was the sky blues (yes I Know its B&W) were too similar and gave banding, so I used Gaussian blur to minimize it tho theres room for improvement.

Never has an old tractor been photographed so often. Iconic almost - great angle . You seem to be about 3 feet below ground for this angle !!! Great shot
