For the second time in two weeks, we’ve had a family outing to Brighton. The two trips, however, were very different.
Last week’s trip (see here) was very brief as we had to get home in time for the afternoon school run and the sea was very rough. By contrast, we were able to take our time yesterday and the sea was incredibly calm, although it was bitingly cold.
I took this image just as we were approaching Brighton Pier. As you can see, the sun was low in the sky and sunset wasn’t far off. A few minutes later I noticed loads of photographers setting up tripods waiting for the moment the sun dipped behind the horizon.
I like the silhouette effect. What is the story of the couple in the foreground? Friends, boyfriend/girlfriend, married couple, just setting out on a relationship, splitting up? What is going on? That’ll be the journalist in me, I want to know everything!
The image was taken in auto mode. Shutter speed 1/200 sec, focal length 34mm, aperture f9 and ISO 100.
I’m not really a creature of habit, but, as I do on most Sundays, I have linked this to the #MySundayPhoto linky hosted by the Photalife blog. Click on the badge below to view the linky.
