A Million Panes of Light

The effects of direct light into the lens are always amazing. The infinite points of reflection the sea creates in the glare path of the sun fox the light meter to compensate and drop all other parts of the image to night-deep contrast, which creates an amazing atmosphere to such scenes. This is the small-boat marina at Scarborough, on the Yorkshire coast, shot from the winding cliff stair leading up to the walls of the castle, and one is very aware of the passage of time here. The sea is eternal, the castle over 800 years old, the marina modern, but all coexist in immediate contact with eachother. The dramatic light this shot offers suits the sense of antiquity at the locale very well indeed. Fuji FinePix S5600, automatic. November, 2007. Image by Mike.
