I've just finished the Wales Ladies Championship of Europe and, fortunately by way of a change during the week, the sun was out. Conwy Golf Club hosted the tour this week and I decided to do a few trophy shots with the winner, South Africa's Lee-Anne Pace, that would convey the classic links course feel. There was a fair bit of dry grass in the rough so I decided to use this as a foreground as it would complement the dark sky that I wanted. The contrast between the sky and the golden rough was useful as Lee-Anne was wearing all white, which in sunshine, can be challenging to expose properly. I used a polarising filter, a favourite of mine for deep blue skies. I used a 580ex strobe to fill in the shadows under the cap
