Morecambe Bay

Posted by Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 2 March 2008 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Another early morning photo from Morecambe Bay but taken the day before the two previous B&W(ish) shots in completely different light and weather, even though it was just as cold.

I used a Cokin ND grad filter to get this sky......there's no photoshop in this one bar straightforward processing of the Raw file.

For anyone whose interested there's a better quality larger version of this image here

I can all but hear the water gently lapping at the sides of one of these boats. Great work with the filters.
