Arthropleura by FlippinPhil Arthropleura by FlippinPhil
8.50am on a slightly chilly sunday morning as the sun peaks above the horizon at Crail, Fife, SE coast Scotland.

The title 'Arthropleura' comes from the centipede fossil that was found on this coast from around 350 million years ago. This is the third time I've visited this small colourful, rocky beach just next to the harbour in the small village which is to the right in this image. The sun creates a trail of light streaming across the water from the north sea to the rocks, large and small, in front of me... Shadows forming, and soon to disappear as the sun has only a small gap in the clouded sky.

Wow wonderful. The flare doesn't bother me (at first, anyway).

Beautiful light and loving the compo here. I find the sun a little messy though with all that flare. Did you happen to shoot a frame with a tight aperture for more of a sunstar effect? Would have looked nice here. All in all though this is a lovely shot, one of your best IMO!

Thanks Drew, glad you dig it :) Completely agree on the flare, always a bit of a pain to process shots shooting so directly into the sun. Nah I did not as I'm never sure if it would make much of a difference with the 10-20mm lens, but something I will take on board for future scenarios, cheers!

You'd be surprised with the 10mm man, I've done some pretty awesome sunstars with that lens on the 40D. Nowhere near as yummy as the 17-40 and 5D2 now though, even better the 16-35... Can't justify the price of the 16mm though, not a must for landscapes being 2.8. It'd be handy for festivals and events I guess shooting 2.8 for creamy bokeh of the dance floor or something like that. Make do with what we got I guess eh :P
