With the light soft­en­ing (but show­ing no signs of bathing the cas­tle in a golden glow!) we walked to the top of the small hill over­look­ing the har­bour to shoot the lo­cal war memo­rial, and came across this sea of small wooden crosses. Placed there by vis­i­tors com­mem­o­rat­ing the cen­te­nary of the First World War, they pro­vided an ideal sub­ject for our sec­ond shot. David en­cour­aged me to shoot ver­ti­cally and to get down re­ally low to fill the fore­ground with the crosses. At his sug­ges­tion, I po­si­tioned the memo­rial it­self in the mid­dle of the frame, and made sure to in­clude the cas­tle in the dis­tance – again to pro­vide a sense of place. The light wasn’t es­pe­cially dra­matic, but I love the way it picks up the warmth of the wooden crosses against the cooler blues of the back­ground and the sky.
