"I wanted a slight contrast to show the difference in times. So I went for a bright bold image. I tried twice to capture the image from the same height but the tide was low on both accounts. Bit of a shame as I wanted some cars in the shot to show how they've changed. Still, any shot taken from here will show modern times compared to old. The fact that I couldn't quite reproduce the original shows how things have changed."
