I had seen photos of this lighthouse before, and then found it was only about an hour along the coast from me. I checked out the tide times as I knew it had to be at high tide and at sunset. We set off to get the shot, only for the weather to close in. I ended up stood on the beach with my other half holding an umbrella over me and the camera as the rain started. It was blowing a gale and the wind was coming straight up the channel, straight towards us. That meant a lovely long exposure with my ND filter added some cloud streaks. I also left my phone in the car and so had to guess at the exposure times (i have relied on the app too much and not learned them…rookie mistake!) I then edited several photos in the way Tim had taught me, and this is one of them. I’m sure I couldn’t have taken this shot (it would have taken multiple trips without doing the planning) without Tim’s teaching.
