I don’t tend chase sunsets these days but, on this day, there was something quite tangible in the air and the draw was too much.
I was on a pre-pandemic trip to Westward Ho! on the North Devon coast with my wife Lara for a few days away and, sensing something brewing in the sky, I got that itch to pick up my camera and go for a walk along the coast path to see what might happen.
After about a mile or so I reached Cornbourgh Cliff where there is a wonderful sweeping view all along the coast to Harland Point across the bay. The sun was low in the sky by now and so I started making a few images of the scene bathed in the warm sunlight. As I worked, the sky started to pick up colour and before long I was witnessing possibly the most vivid sunset I had ever seen.
I have only been back briefly since that day, due to the pandemic, but I am so looking forward to getting back once the current restrictions ease.
