Photographer caught in gales near Land’s End

March 12, 2008

A landscape photographer last night captured a picture of gales striking the Cornish coast during the worst storms to hit Britain this winter.

Devon-based photographer David Clapp used a Canon EOS 5D digital SLR and 250mm lens to record this rare image at 6.58pm yesterday.

The picture was recorded at a shutter speed of 1/640sec, using an aperture set at f/6.3.
