Winter Sun, Ainsdale Dunes

Here’s another shot from my obligatory stop en route to Formby. This week was so bleak that the beach looked miserable. The sun was low and just beginning to paint the sky a weak shade of red. Everywhere was dull. I used Photomatix to bring out the contrast and unsharp mask with a large radius to bring out some detail in the fine grass and bare tree.

I was born in Northern Ireland and raised in the suburbs of Belfast just off the Saintfield Road, attended Cairnshill Primary School and Annadale Grammar School. I studied for a London University BD at Belfast Bible College.
