Week 7: Shoreham Coastguard & Sea Defenses at Sunrise

February 22, 2013  •  1 Comment

 

Well, I finally did it!  Got up early, that is!!!  And was rewarded by a gorgeous sunrise.  So I headed to the far easterly point of the beach to get the best of the sun's rays.  As I write, it's half-term, and I'll be lucky to get 10 minutes to write this, so I'll let my photos tell the bulk of the story this week...

Shoreham Coastguard was beautifully silhouetted in the early light, and the previous night's rain had left puddles, reflecting the skies and adding interest to the lower half of the picture.  In the image below, I placed the coastguard hut centrally in the frame, positioning myself in line with the sun and hut to focus the viewer's eyes on the hut and the shapes made by the clouds above it.

Before the sun rose too high, I headed to the old metal promentary for more silhouettes.  The tide was out, so I was able to climb onto the structure and walk around it, looking for different angles to photograph.

The light was so stunning, I didn't mind the cold.  And anyway, after about 45 minutes, the sun had risen above the metal structures, reducing the saturation in the skies, and shortening the shadows - time to go home!

Just one final photo from the sea wall, looking back towards the beach.  The early sunlight naturally saturated the colours of the old metal posts and shingle.  You don't need Photoshop if you get up early enough!
