Early Morning at Spurn Point

By YorkshireSam
I had intended to be at the lighthouse for first light but arriving to find the road washed away and so closed I had a three mile trek over mud and soft sand first which meant the sun had risen higher than wished for by the time I got there. Fortunately the windy morning produced a colourful red sky and thankfully a bit of cloud to go with it. Moments later the cloud thinned , the sky lost all colour and I was plodding back to my car thinking how next time I'll make sure the road is open first.

Excellent use of dof Sam. Some movement in the grasses I think because of the long exposure - I guess you cannot win everywhere. I like it! Perseverance paid off!

A really superb image. The composition is more than good, it is brilliant. I especially like the foreground. A nice big print of this one will look great on your wall.
Regards Paul.

As always I am delighted when I see many people have enjoyed seeing what I upload and I thank you all for your comments and votes and an extra thank you Jeanie for the GE which really made the trek there and back a whole lot more worthwhile, kind regards, Sam :o).

Cheers for that, it sure explains the nightmare of mud and rubbish I had to plod through. Noted there is a huge grant allocated for making the lighthouse a visitor centre and access is needed to the cottages and lifeboat station so the road will be reinstated though when is guesswork at the moment. Cheers
