Amber Dawn


Whitby Sunrise

Amber Dawn by ebor images


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.


About Mark Bulmer

Hi and glad you came across my site and me. I'm a passionate Landscape photograpaher from York, North Yorkshire, England. I started to seriously photograph landscape images in 2010 after giving up my lifelong passion for course fishing. It was quite a natural progression for me having spent most of my young and adult life chasing that red letter day of bagging up a net full of fish while spending a day in natural beautiful surroundings, been on the bank of a lake or river from dawn to dusk and witnessing some incredible sunrises and sunsets along the way. After a bitter divorce in 2010, my whole life changed and what once was changed. My passion for fishing had gone. My passion for the great outdoors though still remained and photography had always been my second hobby. I decided to mix the two together as a distraction from the past and over the last few years its changed my perception of life. I still end up seeing the sunrise and sunset I loved to witness on the bank, I still get to enjoy the great outdoors but it takes me further afield to explore new avenues, venture to new highs, see new places, share new visions and ultimately get that cracking shot. Its addictive fun and a pleasure to do. I hope you enjoy get something from what I share and I look forward to bringing more of my visions and techniques. Drop me a line any time. Mark
