I had been commissioned by the National Trust to photograph Watersmeet House, which is a beautiful piece of architecture on the banks of the river Lyn, and when driving back to Lynmouth to grab a bite to eat I could see the colour of the sky as I approached. I just about had enough energy to grab my camera from the car and quickly set up to get the last strip of light on Foreland point. I had to use a 2 stop ND to bring the contrast down to allow for some detail in the foreground and consequently only had time to shoot 2 frames of film. The sales from this image now far outweigh the commission I was sent to Lynmouth for.
