Fanfare of the Occident

Fanfare of the Occident

Photo Information
...in that dilated moment after sunset when the sky holds all the light...

David Wroblewski



Afterglow and twilight hues merge in the skies above the Thurlestone and Burgh Island.

Thurlestone Rock was originally known as the 'thirled stone', from an Anglo-Saxon word meaning 'hole'. The arch is of Permian Red Sandstone, which formed around 250-300 million years ago.

The fin of rock with the portal is made of silty banded slates of the Meadfoot Beds. This is at the southern end of South Milton Sands.

These rocks lie in the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Devon, UK

I would have this on my wall any time, wonderful skies and the long exposure has just smoothed the sea.enough

I shall remember that very low viewpoint - it works very well indeed. (so does the rest of it!).

Thanks you David It was tricky with a rather steep beach to get a low viewpoint and keep my peripheral vision aware of the occasional wave that lolloped in further than the rest. Tis hard to multi-task in such beguiling light!

Thanks you very much Ian, I wanted to keep the distant headland to be rightwards of the seastack and get all the elemnts to 'work together' as best I could manage. Beguiling light it was

Great colours and composition Phil... Love how the angle of the leading cloudline mirrors the breaking wave on the shore... Really well seen...

Thanks so much for your generous comments Bill and thanks for noticing the mirrored forms of shore and the neon leading cloud edge... I had a grin like a Cheshire Cat when I saw that opportunity arise
