First Light

Sango Beg, Near Durness, Scotland


With having the accommodation only a 10min drive away, meant getting up for sunrise images was no hardship.   It also leaves you plenty time to scope out potential images and watch how the light hits the land as it crept over the mountains in the distance.  I wanted to incorporate the pinnacle into the image and as the light hit it and the rocks in the background, I knew I had my image.
