It is daybreak on the Lizard Peninsular, and for a few brief moments the chilled winter's dawn is warmed by the honeyed glow of the rising sun. I have been standing on the rocks since the first vestiges of light lit the eastern horizon and have witnessed the transition as the tide presses in.
Sea water acts differently at different temperatures. In winter, as rolling waves tumble across the rocks, they froth into a whispering foam. Now, as the light level increases, the tideline begins to positively glow. So, with numbed fingers working my camera settings, I attempt to capture the contrast between the rugged, slick, rocky features and the softness of the water and light.
This photograph would suit reproduction as a framed, raised '3D' acrylic artwork. The frame is 5.5cm deep and the acrylic rests just within the outer edge. This 'lifts' the image off the wall to pronounce the depth of field. The mood and elemental essence would also be enhanced by the crystal clear depth of the high quality gallery acrylic.
