A few weeks ago, I ran a Landscape Photography Workshop that ended up at Rhossili Down. Whilst there, I spotted a great patch of wild flowers so at the next possible opportunity, I headed out there for sunset. When I got there, though, I was a little disappointed to find livestock have pooed all over it! Luckily, there were other wild flowers nearby so I set the camera up and waited. I really wanted the sun to come out and provide some side-lighting on the flower. Whilst I was waiting, the sky looked amazing.
Twenty five minutes later, the sun finally shone on the grass and the landscape was transformed. I worked as quickly as I possibly could, which was just as well because it only lasted for about 3 minutes! This is the photo I was after:
Once it was all over, I set about looking for other photos in case the sun came out again – it didn’t, but there were some new ferns just in front of where I was so I used my tilt-shift lens to really emphasis them. I’m really pleased with this photo!
Shortly before it was the time for the sun to set, I noticed the underneath of the clouds were being lit by the sun so I composed a shot and took this photo:
That was the end of the good light so I headed back home, happy that I had a shot of two in the bag.
