Back to the beach

25th November – Sunday

This weekend I was lucky to get back to some beach photography. Due to the high tides and bad timings recently, I have not had the opportunity to get down there so Sunday was a nice change.

We opted for sunrise at the Heritage Coast then a trip to Wells Cathedral. With the weather being like it is, the roads were totally flooded in the area so we decided to stay local and make a dash for the coast then the waterfalls.

“Blue Hour”

We arrived a little after 7am with enough time to get down to the beach and set up. We decided on Nash Point which is a climb down and in this weather, a muddy one at that. The tide was out enough and was retreating so gave us plenty of opportunities to get some photos.

“Drama on the horizon”

We had a lot of varying light to begin with plus a spot of rain just before sunrise to contend with. It managed to stop just as sunrise was upon us and we were treated to more varying light and some great definition in the sky and much less cloud cover than the 80 percent forecast.

“Reflected clouds”

We made our way back towards the car, spending some time photographing the glow we had in the photo above. A touch more rain came in and I spent the last 10 minutes before getting back to the car for food using the B&W ND110 “10 stopper” to capture the image below.

“Sphinx” – ISO50, F14, 95 seconds.

All in all a nice return to the beach and hopefully not the last one this year.

Thanks for reading.
