I was invited to run two landscape photography workshops as part of the Royal Photographic Society's Visual Art Group autumn weekend in Dorset. It was raining heavily on Saturday morning so I took the group to Swanage Pier. Wet planks reflected light from a grey sky, bringing this image to life in a way that would not have occurred on a dry day. The wind direction was northerly and hence not driving rain directly onto our camera lenses. I increased contrast in the sky using a virtual graduated filter in Lightroom.
