Spurn Point Vlog
I travel to Spurn Point in this landscape photography vlog. An amazing and isolated location that provides some stunning seascape and sunset photography opportunities.

Remote Landscape Photography
When we are trying to capture our best landscape photography it often means travelling to remote and inaccessible locations. Spurn Point is one such place. It is a thin strip of land out on the East Yorkshire coast of the UK that juts out into the Humber estuary. It is full of military history and is an amazing yet strange place. In part due to its isolation and the weather conditions it must often be faced with. It is also an important wildlife sanctuary run by the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust.
East coast seascape sunsets
It is also one of the very few places on the East coast of the UK where you can capture some decent seascape sunset photography. I headed out with a good weather forecast for golden hour and stopped off on route at the Humber bridge, one of the worlds longest suspension bridges. I had a little composition in mind for the bridge whilst I was still test out the 11mm wide angle prime lens.
Spurn Point is accessed only on foot by a causeway where a road used to stand. It was washed away by the rising sea levels during a storm several years ago. Crossing the causeway adds an element of drama to the day and you risk being cut off by the high tide.
Landscape photography wise my aim was to tell the story of Spurn Point. Capturing some beautiful seascapes and picking up a signature sunset shot at the end of the day with some beautiful colour in the sky was my plan. However proceedings were more difficult than I had anticipated and the feeling of isolation out there in the sea created an unnerving feeling.
In the end it was a successful landscape photography trip and I came away with 2-3 images that I am very happy with.
