I was attempting to get a photograph of the sunrise from Golden Cap, but it wasn’t anywhere near as colourful as I had hoped, as heavy rain clouds drifted over the eastern horizon and obscured the morning rays.
The sun did eventually break free, but its brightness was short lived as more clouds spread across the sea. However, the play of light in this brief moment was wonderful. I was transfixed by the way it highlighted the vast clouds, rainfall and waves.
As a result, I was very nearly saturated by this incoming squall – had I not gained my presence of mind and made a dash for cover just in time!
