Dunnaglea Sea Arch

By Johnnybairdphotography
I love it when a plan comes together, well kind of. Having passed Dunnaglea Sea Arch many times, exploring the stacks around Ballintoy, I had always planned on catching a beam of sunlight striking through the arch. Right by the sea before the arch is an interesting place - lots of puddles full of seawater, interesting rocks and luminous green seaweed. Finding my chosen spot I used the Photopills app’s augmented reality function to determine at what time the sun would transit and align with the hole. I took a wander for a while and came back at the right time. Originally I had hoped for a nice shaft of light, but in the end the light wasn’t strong enough, but gave a nice sunburst. As some cloud nearly scuppered the very brief moment I had to catch the sun, it wasn’t a bad outcome in the end.

Very nice how you composed the shot with the sun in the arch. The foreground distracts me a bit and i keep on focusing at the green spaghetti. I think the shot would benefit if you used the bolders in front of the arch to make it a more balanced composition.
