Hell's Fire

By rhiw_com  
My first upload for a good while, as I've been up the wall with various projects.

Taken at Hell's Mouth bay on Llyn about three weeks ago, the light was amazing for about 10 minutes.

F22, 2.2 sec, Lens @ 17mm, ISO 100, ND Grad Filter, 5 min before dawn.

Please view...LARGE..if you can.

Many thanks for all your comments on my previous uploads.

Mari, Toffee (Tom) and Phil Morgan, great to have your company at the weekend, hope the light was good for you!!!

Regards to you all, Tony

I'll bet that the camera was about to explode as it recorded so much colour! Do you take shorter and longer exposures at the same spot? I'd be curious to see what they would look like in comparison.
