Connecting the local landscape of lakes and the nearby sea is obvious. They are directly linked by the high sky and open spaces. Backlit shots by the sea also led me to capture similar images towards the end of the week in the Lake District.
When taking photos in low evening light on seaside beaches, you once again realise the strength of its large surfaces, reflections and sharp changes in contrast. Technically precise work is a necessity, but it is worthwhile. The results are emotionally powerful photos, the opportunity to play with anticipated silhouettes and the chance to add a hidden story to the landscape.
