wandering around

 27th October 2020, Warkworth, 7am

On the road to the beach the pre-sunrise colours were breathtaking.  I had to stop the car for this shot.

A beautiful sunrise is just the start. It's nice to have an interesting foreground and an eye-catching distant object. My most photographed 'distant object' used to be Dunstanburgh Castle but these days it's more often Coquet Island. 

As for the foreground that's where you need to wander around and see what catches your eye. 

This morning there was the old lifebelt and the low tide sand ripples. 

A photographer's task is to MAKE the photograph FROM the view otherwise you have simply snapped a photograph of the view like any other passer-by.
