Cuckmere Bay by TobiasRichter Cuckmere Bay by TobiasRichter
Seven Sisters, UK
Autumn 2012

With the aim of shooting some Scottish Landscapes in dynamic weather I started my trip to Great Britain in mid-November and traveled for about 5 weeks trough the country. My journey took me from the south coast of England via Northumberland to Scotland. In Scotland I traveled from the Isle of Skye to Caithness, Torridon and Assynt. As expected the weather conditions were very contrary (snow, sun, storm, rain). The exposed position at the Atlantic Ocean is responsible for the unpredictable weather in western Scotland. Often it’s possible to experience several seasons within one day. Although it often wasn’t very easy to keep my camera dry, I was rewarded with a variety of spectacular sunrises and sunsets.

The first part of my UK series shows images of the chalk cliffs in southern England, and Calais and castles in Northumberland. I'll upload them here on DA during the next days. English descriptions and more shoots will follow soon!

I love it is the simple thing that I can really say, it is just so epic and I'm so glad you haven't watermarked it. It looks simply stunning and beautiful - the purples and the dark colours really contrast well and the sea almost looks like clouds in the foreground, matching the clouds in the background. This is a common technique, so only 4 for originality, but it is still amazing really. It looks heavenly, and the rocks contrast well with the rest of the beautiful sea. To summarize it is easy - it is simply amazing, and I love it.

Amazing light here. Not sure your tripod position but feel you could have raised it a bit to help separate the fg and bg elements a bit also placing the righthand rocks closer to the corner. Stuff only a photog would say and not a customer. Way to be there...sick conditions.

Thanks for your comment Aron. I prefer a low position most of the time to get a closer view to the waves in the foreground to get some more dynamic. With the stones you're maybe right. I tryed differnt compositions but this light displayed only for a really short time and I choose the one with the best sky.

Tolles Bild (Farben, Schärfe, Licht...harmoniert alles) !
Da es viele ähnliche solcher Aufnahmen gibt (ist nun mal ein äußerst beliebtes Motiv : Meer, Sonnenuntergang, Wolken), sticht es vielleicht an Originalität nicht heraus...dennoch aber an Qualität.
MIR gefällt es gut.

The scenery made me speechless. So beautiful; the colors on the horizon and the way the clouds look like stairs. the mist/water slowing toward further in the horizon, or background.
