I took this image just north of the English border as I was driving home from the Edinburgh Festival this year. It was a bright, clear evening and I pulled into a lay-by to capture the beautiful cloud formations and colour reflections in the calm sea.
I knew that straight shots would be effective and I took a few which turned out fine. But I also wanted more of an ethereal look so I took a few more in which I moved the zoom during the exposure. I thought this would work but I also know that it's a hit and miss technique, so I took a number of shots in this way. This one was the best of the crop.
