Photographer's Note

Kimmeridge is one of my favourite local bays to visit. It offers such amazing geology which begs to be photographed. When I arrived late in the afternoon I quickly made my way around both those headlands that you can just about see on the horizon. I was hoping to catch the low sunshine lighting the cliffs around the corner up golden. But as I dashed over the rocky foreshore I was sure I would miss the best of the light. When I arrived it was indeed too late for the golden light which I needed to make the shot work. The colours above were incredible, but not what I needed for the shot I had visualised. So I decided to head back to this spot and hope for a good long exposure as the light levels dropped. Once again I dashed back over the rocks as quickly as I dare, trying to be as careful as time allowed for. I got back here as it was getting pretty dark. By now I was thinking that the whole trip was wasted and was return to go home empty handed. But I decided to perservere and went for a long exposure. I only had time for a couple of shots before the light levels had dropped too much. Luckily, after all that dashing around I got a shot I really liked. And the 5D is so good at holding back the noise - you would never have guessed this was a 200 second exposure!
