Bamburgh Suprise

By John Giddings
Taken this weekend on the 'Northscape workshop'. My first time in Northumberland, Oh boy what a coast! We had a wonderful time as usual with 'Northscape'. Big thanks to Keithh and Maddie.

Looks good large. Thanks for looking, John.

ISO 100, F16, 0.8sec, 4 stops of ND grad soft (Lee Filters)

Misleading title - I thought you had some kind of surprise in a Bamburgh picture, but it turns out to be a sunrise, LOL!

Great shot, BTW. I was here a few times last week, and nothing but greyness all around, but this looks great! Love the sky, the foreground, everything!

Like the orange in the sky and on the sea, the light/colour reflecting on the wet rock in the fg looks good too

Wicked colours John,the light reflecting on the rocks is the touch of glamor for me.I see a little light halo around the castle in the bg though but that big sky makes up for it.

Very good f/g detail and a very moody sky to add to the mood of the castle. Excellent work.

Magic colours here John. The light on the rocks is stunning as well. John
Fabulous image John one of your best ever and a very good image indeed from this well photographed castle. Looks like a stage curtain being drawn across the sky to reveal a wonderful light.
This must get some award surely?
