Many years ago the first photo magazine I bought had a shot very similar to this in it which I liked, so years later when I found myself in Cromer as well as taking loads of other shots I had to have ago at a composition similar to the one I had seen many years ago that had inspired me.
I hope somebody out there sees my shot and is similarly inspired.

Her brain felt hot, steamy - feverish, almost.
It was always like that right before the Next Hot Idea popped out of it.
I processed this one from the mood I was in at the time. I always put a lot of myself into photo processing; some just come out as more of a direct imprint than others. I talk about that on my blog post, linked to at the top of this post.
I shot it auto-bracketed, but wasn't sure if I'd go all-HDR on it in post processing or not. Sometimes sunsets with a lot of pink or red in them can look a bit iridescent, which I don't love. In the end, I used HDR more in the rocks and sand to get the textures.. and blended two of the more nicely colored skies together for the basic image. Then I went from there, as I always do, to give it the amount of contrast, texture, color and light quality that was in my hot and stormy mood that night. :D
A couple of buddies thoughtfully took me out to Ramshaw rocks in the Peak district UK as part of my rehabilitation from a serious shoulder injury I need to start getting out in more challenging ground and stretching myself and recovering physiologically.
It was also a great chance to take the Sony A7R and Zeiss 24-70 F4 lens out for a spin. I have had to stop using my D800 due to my current physical limitations so I got the A7R which I can cope with size/weight wise and after a couple of trips and some playing at home I am getting to grips with it, as I have an NEX7 it wasn't too big a jump to understand the control and menu systems and the field craft used for a D800 is the same as required for the A7R although if its windy due to the cameras lighter weight I might need a few extra rocks to weigh down the tripod.
All in all I am pleased with the photo I made in the few moments of nice warm light before the sun hid behind a bank of clouds.

Amazingly this morning it wasn't raining so despite the biting cold and wind I ventured out and was rewarded with some nice light.
It was a test mission trying out the Sony A7R ahead of my big trip to New Zealand in April comparing lens's and getting familiar with the new body but I managed to grab this shot which I quite like.
If you like it please feel free to reshare.
