📍 St Michaels Mount, Marazion 🌊☀️🌊

One from the archive - which I've sat on, fully edited, for over a year. It's about time I posted it - especially as the mount has recently been a filming location for HBO's Game of Thrones prequel - "House of the Dragon."

When this was shot, there was what looks like a large tent or marquee on the island... I'm not sure why.

I framed up this composition with three key elements: The mount & castle as a focal point, the rocks & pool to anchor the foreground, and the causeway to lead the eye to the mount.

To create a more minimal picture, I attached a 10 stop neutral density filter to extend the shutter speed to 75 seconds and flatten the already calm sea.

I almost always shoot the mount at sunrise - when there's a chance of interesting conditions and of having the place to myself. On this occasion, the rising sun painted the scene in golden light.
