Sunrise at Newbiggin, Northumberland.


I wasn't there long - these dark clouds quickly rolled in across the clear skies and the sun was hidden by a low band of cloud along the horizon. But long enough to take this photo - an exposure of 30 seconds, with a 0.9 (8 stop) ND filter and a 0.6 (4 stop) hard graduated ND filter for the sky. As normal, very little is done in Photoshop - just some sharpening and a slight boost in contrast.


I think I'll add Newbiggin to my list of places to visit - I had a good walk along the rocks to the north east of the village and there looks to be some great spots fora higher tide.


Feel free to have a look through my Water photo gallery, where you'll find this photo and a number of others.
