ST BEES BEACH

By Sarah Farquhar

Camera: Canon EOS 550D

Lens: Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 lens

Exposure: 13 seconds at f/14 (ISO 100)

Sarah says: «The sunsets at St Bees beach are amazing. On this occasion I went down at high tide to do some long-exposure photography. I decided to use the rocks as the foreground interest. I used an ND grad filter to balance the sky and retain detail in the darker foreground.»

• LEE FROST: Sunset by the sea is hard to beat when moody images are your goal, but with so many creative options at your disposal it can sometimes be

Murlough Beach

County Down

After a week spent battling with the elements on the stormy north coast of County Antrim, I decided to spend the last couple of days of my Northern Ireland trip further south, and so headed to County Down. I had seen photos of Murlough Beach, and so decided to try and capture a sunrise on the beach.

I first arrived at Dundrum early afternoon, and decided to make a quick reconnaissance trip to the beach to familiarise myself with the location in preparation for the next day’s sunrise.

I wandered the paths through the Murlough National Nature Reserve

LIFES A BEACH!

WILD TIMES AT FIRST BYSTANDER BALL EVER

They started arriving early, they were THAT excited. School was out, the evening sultry and it was the first Bystander Ball with Johnnie B. Oh. My. God. The dress code was ‘black tie on the beach’, and there were some creative interpretations (arm bands, anyone?). But mostly the girls wore floral garlands, the boys wore Hawaiian shirts and the key accessory was a pair of very, very long tanned legs.

These kids don’t hang about. As soon as the 500 teens tore into Notting Hill’s Supperclub, the action began — they were straight

Life — a movement.

PROLOGUE.

Road. Fees, as always, at the last moment before leaving. Hastily abandoning things in Germ bag and backpack — we start. Again, we feel the innermost rise when tickled inside, filling and explosion barely disguised glee bubbles of happiness — we escaped from the close embrace of the city. And outside rush familiar landscapes: first alternate small towns, small villages, then juicy Vologda fields that are replaced by forests of Karelia, and finally the proud Hibiny, lake surface, garrulous rivers and green hills. Kola Peninsula we were met with gray skies and rain wall. Such is the northern
