This week I've been back on the Kentish Coast with my camera in hand. One of the most valuable lessons I was reminded of while shooting in Iceland was not to be afraid to turn your back to the view.
On this particular morning at Folkestone, it was clear that the sunrise wasn't going to offer up a myriad of dizzying hues, so I put my 360 head on and found this lovely composition facing away from the sunrise. The rocks in the immediate foreground give a little texture to the shot and the sand appears almost bleached out like water in the middle distance. What I particularly like are the strong diagonal shadow lines from the street light and how they work in symmetry with the caution sign.
When I turned back to the ocean, the light was showing signs of promise and I captured this four-shot panorama of the Harbour Arm. What I love about panoramas is that they give you a large format image. In this case, the final image is 85 megapixels, which gives you a TON of detail in the final image.
