Mount(ing) Light

By MrsS    
Hi All - welcome to "Chapter Two" in the Cornwall Saga Wink

Having had a great evening with Bill at Priest's Cove, we decided to burn the candle at both ends for a day or two, (since we'd be back in bed before Beth even noticed we were gone) and decided to start our sunrise quest at Marazion.

The early light wasn't brilliant, plus the tide was in, and we upset a wandering Belgian photograher by already staking our claim on the jetty (if you've ever been there you will know that two tripods plonked there will definitely repel all boarders!)

Anyway, after a fair few 10 stop shots, it becomes obvious even to me that there are only so many compositions you can get from sharing a small space with two others. As it was also obvious that the tide was going out so the causeway would eventually become visible AND that the sun was about to pop its head above the cloud bank that it was hiding behind, I wandered off to see if I could spot any other opportunities.

To cut a long story short(ish) - best you get - the light and the clouds all conspired together to produce this for me Smile

It's a crop from one image as the only stitching I do involves repairing jeans and sewing on buttons! Tongue

Thanks for your time, as always much appreciated, and for all your lovely comments and votes on yesterday's upload Smile

Time to beging to gird my loins ready for the onslaught tomorrow! Wink

A very effective and well balanced shot: the effect of the big stopper is very evident in this image, and I do like the result very much.
