Margate - Light is everything

How many times have you heard a photographer say 'the light was really poor . . . ' as an excuse/reason for their images being flat or lifeless. It happens to us all!

There are however occasions when the light is perfect and then it's a case of making hay while the sun shines.

Philip and I went to Margate on September 30th to see the new exhibits at the Turner Contemporary. After our tour we grabbed a coffee and took some shots outside. The gallery building was resplendent, being bathed in the late afternoon light and there was no need to use a polariser to beef up the sky or to 'process to death in photoshop' - most satisfying!
