Salt Skin by jamesholephoto Salt Skin by jamesholephoto
Black Hole near Craster, Northumberland

A lovely rough sea sunrise this morning, my favourite conditions, it was nice to be up early after having a lazy photographic start to 2010.

Title is a Ellie Goulding song which just happened to be playing while I was processing this shot and it seemed kind of fitting! [link]

Thank you! I tend to just use ND filters, this shot has a 0.9 hard edge filter placed just on the horizon to control the sunlight! :)

Your very kind, It just takes time and practise to get shots like this, great light helps too, keep taking photos and you will get better, I can see from your gallery that you already have camera skills!
