The day I made these shots I was woken up by surreal yellow light coming through the window of the shack.
We’ve stayed at this beach each summer for thirty or more years and I’d never seen this before. The sun had snuck over the hills and hit some God clouds and rain and bounced back towards us. At first I seriously thought something was wrong until I worked out what was going on. Of course I grabbed a camera but I was not really prepared – my Nikon F2 wasn’t loaded so I made a couple of frames on my daughter’s FE but I thought I’d missed the opportunity. Sure enough, by the time I’d put a film in the F2 the light had passed.
