Initial thoughts on natural lighting

Before I continue to exercise 4.2 I realised that I had visited Dungeness again recently with very different weather / lighting conditions. I wanted to look back at these side by side to see the comparison. I went purely to walk my dogs but on both occasions I took my camera as an excuse to practise, my first visit was in November on a very cold, slightly wet overcast day. My most recent visit was in April half term on what is currently considered the hottest day of the year so far.

The views are not exactly the same but the difference in lighting is vast! The overcast dull day actually produced better skies which gives more atmosphere to the shot. The cloudless blue skies add colour but give a much more typical ‘beach’ shot, although the sun did provide deep shadows which added contrast.
