Amber Dawn has been one of my all time favorite captures of a sunrise to date.
The location was Whitby in the North York Moors. I had set off from York around 5am, which was pushing it a little to be there for sunrise at 6.25am. As I arrived on the sea front the clouds were coming together and I only had moments to find a place to park, I normally park up on the west cliff but I had no time to walk down the Khyber Pass, So I sneakily parked behind the fisherman’s wife restaurant. Quickly collecting my kit together I made a dash for it down the west pier frantically extending my tripod legs ,while all the time the clouds were turning this incredible display of gold and amber light. With no time to spare the camera was out of the kit bag and assembled on to my arca swiss mount, the composition I had in mind was already sorted, I had no time to attach my Lee filter system so I had no choice but to take 2 exposures as the sun had already come full circle. With the shot in the bag I just stood back to watch this amazing display of amber light lighting up the sky.
I decided to put this image to print and display it in Trattles and Geall Fine Art Gallery on Church Street and also our website Ebor Images. I chose to have it printed on several formats one been Aluminium ready to hang. This high definition printing technology really made the image pop, in addition it also made the image robust, waterproof and scuff resistant and made a real eye catching metal wall art feature. This technology comes at a price but something this beautiful deserves the very best. I am very proud of this shot and happy that people have purchased my art to display in their homes or office. It is a real eye catcher and I hope you like it too.
