We be­gan our shoot at the har­bour on Holy Is­land, over­look­ing Lind­is­farne Cas­tle. Although it was late af­ter­noon the light was still quite harsh, so David sug­gested ei­ther try­ing to cap­ture close-ups of colours and tex­tures around the boat­yard (which would have ben­e­fited from the hard light) or shoot­ing an im­age that in­cluded both the cas­tle and el­e­ments of lo­cal cul­ture, to pro­vide a sense of place. With this shot we man­aged to com­bine both of th­ese ap­proaches – the tex­tures on the poles and the boats, and in the grass, make the most of the hard light­ing, but not at the ex­pense of the wider land­scape. I de­cided to crop it square to fo­cus the viewer’s at­ten­tion on the cas­tle, which I placed bang in the mid­dle of the frame.
