This shot did rather well on Instagram last week so I was interested if it was purely down to the fact that I was viewing it on a small mobile phone screen and wondered if it would survive the greater test of a blogpost. I exported the image to my computer levelled the horizon and cropped it to the same shape as I posted it on IG and that was it. The colour is pretty good – texture is visible in the sand ripples out to about 25m and the town is about 1.5 miles back down the beach so I wasn’t surprised that it struggled with the shadow detail in the town. All in all, it is a pretty faithful reproduction of a perfect day unfortunately we had the dog so I didn’t have the DSLR to provide a comparison shot, thought’s?
Well I have to admit to having become a little lost in music during this post. I became confused between the album entitled Sunburst Finish by Be Bop Deluxe and the track by Utopia of the same name. Wherever my influence came from, the picture simply demanded to be titled Sunburst Finish – enjoy
