Holywell Sunset, by AlisterBenn

A well-known beach in the SW of England on an extremely windy night. Long exposures were impossible, as was standing up! All we could do was hang on. I write educational material for creative and expressive photographers.

Keep me Safe, by AlisterBenn

I lived on the north coast of Spain with my wife for a year while I was writing one of my eBooks and fell in love with the gorgeous coast. This area is very famous in Spain and many landscape photographer’s go there. As usual, my inquisitive nature makes me explore every little cave and cove. This is a 7 exposure blend to control the extreme dynamic range typical of these scenarios. Manually blended using various masking and luminosity techniques.

The Highland Gateway, by AlisterBenn

As I sit here looking out the window to a grey Scottish morning, I look across the bay to the Isle of Skye and even in this light it is magnificent. Slate grey seas under a moody sky. I am so fortunate to live and work in my home country, and in one of it’s most beautiful areas. This image was taken on an island off the west coast, looking across the sea to another island famed for its weather and wildness.
