Out for another sneaky Sunday sunrise session with Gerry. This time we’ve headed to Freshwater – Gerry wanted to check out the tidal pool there

Alas the pool itself was, well, absolutely and completely uninspiring… so we hit the rocks nearby to try and salvage something of the morning



NIKON Z 7 + NIKKOR Z 14-30mm f/4 S @ 14 mm, 25 sec at f/9, ISO 64

This was my very first frame of the morning @ 5:33AM (about 20 minutes before sunrise). I’d found this terraced area with all these dried salt pools, and one still filled with water. Tried to put together this landscape composition with the interesting salt trails at a very wide 14mm. Add a touch of low light painting over the rocks in the foreground with the headtorch. Gerry is just to the right of frame shooting down a large crack (again… :))

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger. To see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer click any of the images.
