A foggy day on the coast
Driving up to the workshop I feared the worst – a day of rain and misery, with a group of photographers huddled together keeping dry
It was grim…
But as Americans would say, when life gives you lemons, make a G&T…. or something like that!
And that is just what we did – the fog gave us a completely different look to the previous workshops we’ve run on the coast. We got landscapes which faded to nothing in the distance. Perfect for the cliffs on the Yorkshire Coast.
Also, we had people on the beach at Whitby which faded with distance too. It was actually magical.
The sea was out by the time we reached Sandsend, so we had to shoot the groynes without waves splashing over them – rather using them as reflections and framing people walking by.
That’s what I love about outdoor workshops – you’re never quite sure what you’ll get, but you can ALWAYS find something to shoot – and that is the most important lesson in photography.
