90 second exposure very close to complete darkness at the famous Elgol Beach.

When I started photography, the first book on landscape I bought was Joe Cornish's "First Light". On the cover is the most famous photo of Elgol with the boulder catching the light dubbed the "Cornish Boulder". So it was fantastic to meet Joe at last year's "Wild Photo" symposium. And funnily enough, it was he who wrote the judge's on my "Dawn Stars".
