A Golden Glow


Photography is all about the light and when you get the perfect light a scene that would be 'OK' photographically is suddenly transformed.  This was the case this morning as I headed along the beach at Barns Ness just after sunrise.


Halfway along the rocky shoreline between Whitesands and Barns Ness lighthouse are some rocks where the rain water pours onto the beach.  After days of heavy rain the ground above the rocky outcrop was quite sodden and the water was pouring down like a shower.


Normally this would make an interesting image but with the low sun hitting the cascading water, there was a bright glow as the water hit the rocks.  I set the camera up on the tripod to allow me to use a slow shutter speed and set about capturing this set of images before the sun rose too high in the sky and the light changed.

I also took some other shots with a higher shutter speed to freeze the water drops








With in 10 minutes the light had changed and the golden glow that had caught my eye had gone.  Sometimes when photographing landscapes you get lucky with the light and this was certainly the case this morning at Barns Ness.

Images taken on a Fujifilm X-T1 with either a 16mm f1.4, 90mm f2 or 50-140mm f2.8 lens.
