Low Light Workshop

Fortified by our afternoon off, our intrepid band got well wrapped up against the cold wind and headed for the Pea Stacks, a group of rocks at the South-East corner of Guernsey.  A beautiful location, but the sun was setting rapidly and would soon cast the rocks in shadow.  Some people managed to take pictures of the scene while others were still working out what to do with their cameras!

A view looking East, with Sark in the distance.

We then moved around to St Peter Port harbour, where the docks and Castle Cornet looked spectacular in the twilight.

A view looking back into the town, taken from the harbour wall.  Very beautiful, but also perishing cold!

By this time, many of our troop had left the harbour for the relative shelter of the bathing pools.  I decided to follow, as the moon had come up by this point.  The rest of the images were taken around the bathing pools exclusively by moonlight.

By this point (around 10:30) we had all lost touch with our respective fingers and toes, so headed back home to warm up a bit.
