Sunset at St. Agnes Head, Cornwall

Sunset at St Agnes Head, Cornwall

Shot from the top of St. Agnes Head, on the north coast of  Cornwall near St. Agnes, UK, looking out over the Atlantic – you can’t tell from the photograph, but it was very windy and cold – my daughter is sheltering out of the windy at the bottom of the triangulation point at my feet.  I do feel it was worth it braving the weather for the shot…and such a relief on the walk back to the car once out of the biting wind!

While this was shot back in 2012, I processed this recently in Lightroom 5 – mainly lifting the shadows around the trig point and the middle ground to the sea – also adding a graduated filter for the sky.
