WELCOME TO THE MAY 2019 issue of Digital SLR Photography. No matter where you live in the UK, one fact is certain, head in any direction and you’ll inevitably reach a coastline.

This stormy May sunset provided outstanding light and colour, which got reflected in the wharf's saturated wood too, making the foreground pop.” CANON EOS 6D WITH EF 16-35MM F/4L IS USM LENS. EXPOSURE: 2.5 SECONDS AT F/16 (ISO 200). The Natural Bridge by Sarah Lyndsay Photography www.sarahlyndsayphotography.com “This was shot in the early morning light of Yoho National Park, in the Rocky Mountains, at the Natural Bridge – an iconic location in Canada.
