How the winning photo of the "Sunset or Moonrise" contest was made
By duetto96 in Photo Contests on Oct 30, 2018
Thank you to everyone who nominated and voted for my photo in September’s “Sunset or Moonrise” contest. I was pleased it did well because this image is one of my personal favourites and it is always satisfying when your work is seen and appreciated by others.
I live on the south coast of England in the UK but in recent years I have regularly travelled to south Wales where this image was captured. I usually take my camera with me when I travel and had planned this particular journey to take in a beach in south Wales which I had visited before, but had never photographed. On this occasion I was travelling alone so I timed and broke my four hour journey at the beach on the off-chance there might be a sunset. (Experiencing a sunset in Wales is a rare event for me because it invariably rains while I’m there!)
