Into the Light – Blackpool, England
This is an image I made back in the autumn, in Blackpool, Lancashire, England. The weather was showery, and there was sunshine one minute and heavy rain the next, with fantastic ever-changing cloudscapes over the coast. The sun frequently broke through the stratocumulus cloud, sending dramatic shafts of light down to the surface of the sea. I made numerous frames of these crepuscular rays, but this one is my favourite. The end of Blackpool’s North Pier is visible frame left (hard to see at this size, but visible if you click on the image for the larger version).
