Just about my favourite shot of October so far.
Bardsea is a vast beach a few miles along the coast road from Ulverston. It looks south over Morecambe Bay and is a favourite walk for dog owners. Frisbees can be thrown ‘for miles’!
When we returned to the car, the sun was setting and I could see its reflection in one of the pools. That gave me the idea for this shot, which contrasts the warm sun and the cold ripple of the sandy mud that makes up the beach.
I took one version of the sunset, then bent a little lower to include the ripples in the mud.
A small amount of tweaking with the colours and the contrasts were effective – and the overall ‘feeling’ was exactly what it was like to be there.
I hope it conveys it to you… Just feel that autumn chill!
