So here I am back in Cornwall again with yet another photograph of St Michaels Mount off Marazion.
I must have hundreds of pictures of this scene so this time I wanted something different and only took this picture because of the sky and this emphasises my own rule of going back and taking a different, and hopefully, better photograph of a familiar place.
In this shot the tide is in and the sea surrounds the Mount. There is a ship on the far horizon and seagulls floating around. But look at that sky!
The clouds are rippled, light and dark, speckled and pock marked. It ripples like the sea sometimes does. The low horizon puts the Mount into the sky which is exaggerated. Not quite a rule of thirds format, more a rule of half, quarter, quarter. And that’s another rule to like and use!
