Northumberland has many castles within its boundaries. Dunstanburgh Castle has to be one of my favourites.
For dawn images you have to travel north of the castle and look south east, and for sunset images you have to take the images from the south looking north west.
That's where I was for this image - loking North,
To get the best foreground I had to walk out onto ancient slabs of volcanic rock and place myself by one of the inlets and just wait for the waves.
Surfers often talk about waiting for the "perfect wave" and in photographic terms that's exactly what I had to do. The best moment to open the shutter was just as the wave starts to recede back towards the sea, giving the swirling patterns captured in this image.
The colour version was ok .... but the black and white version is so much better.
