daybreak at Penmon Point
Nikon D5500 with NIKKOR 18- 140mm f/ 3.5- 5.6G lens. Exposure: 20 seconds at f/ 3.5 ( ISO 1250).
What we think: Penmon Point in Anglesey – it's a tranquil place and classic stretch of Welsh coastline. We're not sure what was casting the light on the foreground, or if it was intentional, but it does help add interest – without it the stones would be in shadow! The subtle glow in the sky, mixed with the brooding blue rain clouds adds plenty of interest to the scene too. There's a strong vignette, but this could be corrected easily.
Why it works 1) Moody blue storm clouds 2) Light draws attention to foreground 3) Warm glow on horizon and lighthouse
