'A Long Wait' Menai Strait
I took this photograph whilst being filmed for a new ITV series ‘The Strait’
The cameraman and I were being bitten senseless by a million midgies as we waited for the tide to rise over these heavily weathered wooden posts. Normally I would have gone exploring whilst waiting for right height for the sea, but the hassle of setting up filming positions meant that perhaps this half an hour was the longest I’ve ever waited for a photograph.
The strong earlier sunshine had weakened behind a soft bank of cloud, removing the high contrast I wanted. However the gentleness of the light has still worked nicely for me nevertheless. Indeed, there is something more calming and serene about the light and colours in this image than originally anticipated.
