Storm

28/10/2013
I was in Cornwall for the biggest storm in Southern England since 2008. As the storm approached, I photographed huge waves at Mullion and Kynance Cove on the Lizard peninsula. My favourite image was made just after dawn the following morning from Land's End. Longships Lighthouse is 1.5 miles west of the mainland so I took a 400mm lens with me. For less than a minute, a rare shaft of sunlight caught the lighthouse, enabling me to shoot at 1/640th of a second and almost freeze this massive wave breaking around the lighthouse.
