Transient Light Findhorn

By hwatt  
Findhorn Bay, Moray, Scotland

My personal favorite image from this amazing early Spring evening where traces of snow can still be seen on the mountains across the Moray Firth towards Inverness. Fierce beams of low angle sunlight spewed from beneath dense grey clouds and lit the gable end wood paneling on the colourful but very basic beach huts recently installed at Findhorn bay, such that they shone and glittered like burnished gold in the grazing sunset light. Similarly it affected the pale straw coloured dune grass igniting just the tips of each randomly angled blade. A true transient light moment that surpassed all my hopes and expectations and a joy to behold.

Fuji GFX50S, GF 32-64mm zoom, polariser used as a 2 stop ND filter, and a 0.6ND reverse Grad.
