First of the Summer Sun

By Guernseydan  
My effort from last nights mini-meet with Mike Bonsall and Mark (Hook). I thought I'd break my posting drought to share the results with them!

It was a lovely, warm evening after a stunning day. The clouds put pay to the best of the light in the end but there was still plenty of wave dodging to be had! This shot was about 30 seconds before I had to grab the gear and run as a huge wave swamped the outcrop I was perched on!

My thanks to Mike and Mark.

Hi Dan

Yes this must have been taken seconds before my effort. At the time I thought the light was ok at best but looking at our two images it was actually rather good.

Have a good weekend mate.

Thanks everyone!

Mike - Yeah the light was a little hard to gauge but I think it was a good quality at that moment. I was facing the sun a bit more so didn't quite have the directionality of your shot.

Still quite pleased with it though!
