18th February 2017, armed with my ipod, a camera, a tripod, a shutter release cable and a couple of filters I decided (after checking the weather on my iphone) to head to Saltburn at around 5.30am.  My motivation was to try out some new kit and have a play with a few new filters.  Driving along the parkway and seeing a flash of red in the dark morning sky, I knew that falling out of bed early was a good move.  Stood on the beach at 6am ready to capture the sunrise listening to Elvis belting out The Wonder of You, what better way could there be to start a Saturday morning.

Did I mention that I love my hobby!  Being in control of my camera, knowing exactly how to get the best out of it and capturing a scene how I’d visualised it, all takes practice and I’m constantly practicing.

I cannot teach anybody anything.  I can only make them think… Socrates
