Bamburgh and Rocks

By John Giddings
Taken on the Northscape Workshop before sunrise. At 4am the car doors opened and we scattered across the shore like small children(which of coarse most of us are). Or did one or two shuffle their feet look at the sky grumble a bit and slide down to the beach? I think I will stick to the fairy tale version!

Looks Good Large.

Thanks for looking at all, John.

ISO 100, F16, 8 secs, ND Grads.

Ps, Hope the colour has compressed better tonight.

Classic view John. Ron.
Beautiful light and tones, the soft colour suits the mood of this one, maybe a bit 50-50 but a wonderful second shot from the beach here.
