One of the things that my wife Liz and I really enjoyed during our two week stay spent exploring the beautiful landscapes and coastlines of Devon and Cornwall was watching the dramatic sunsets over the Atlantic ocean.
With clear air and ever changing clouds we got to see some amazing and colourful spectacles.
This particular sunset was captured from high on the cliffs overlooking Widemouth Bay, just to the south of Bude, and what influenced me to take this shot was the patch of brightly lit water, caused by the sun shining through a gap in the clouds.
Just a fleeting moment in time, captured in a series of ones and zeros.
