A wonderful place which is still on my wish list of locations to visit. And a wonderful capture of it. Dramatic light indeed, and it works so well. Well composed, too. In short: I like it!

Simon this is fantastic. The balance of light throughout is astonishing. Was this a single exposure?

Thanks for all the C&C's everyone.

Mike, yes it was a single five second exposure.

Beautiful work Simon, love that foreground with the rocks leading into the sea.

One of my favourite locations, although I've never been there yet when it was safe to go anywhere near that slipway.

Should be worth an award but I'm a little perplexed as to the current EPZ thinking on landscapes, so maybe not.
Nice one Simon....
