Back Light And Side Light

Back Light And Side Light

Back Light And Side Light - Some locations allow for composition that work well with back light and side light landscape photography, these allow for some real flexibility adapting to conditions.

The weather forecast looked promising for a really nice sunrise, plenty of high cloud, no low cloud. Of course the forecast is only that.

I headed out to a beach I know of that would enable me work with a great sunrise if I got it, but adapt if I needed to, by letting me shoot for both back light and side light on the scene.

It was a bit of a struggle to find the right composition to start with but, in the end, I think it worked out pretty well.

I hope you enjoy it
