Re-visiting the familiar

I often like to revisit places that I have photographed before because they can never be constant, the cliffs have been further eroded and the beach has become littered with debris from a rock fall, the sea has a different temperament and the sky is ever-changing.

So late on Saturday afternoon saw me on a couple of mile walk over hills and down into the valley before a climb down to the beach via some weathered concrete steps to a spot I cannot tire of photographing. I had in mind to attempt some long exposure work as the tide was just beginning to recede and the sun was in the early stages of setting. Gear that was required, a tripod, remote control, ND110 Filter and as it became darker I would use the ND4 filter just to be able to speed up my exposure times as I had the couple of miles walk back and this meant a steeper climb back home in the ever decreasing light.

The coming week seems to be interesting with a project to photograph a Grade 1 Listed Church frequented by the Bloomsbury artists.

    • Crikey! Wow! Thanks so much this means a lot I suppose I was trying to look at a scene that is so familiar to me that I see it nearly everyday, but I just wanted to look at it from a different perspective and via a different photographic method. Once again Kay, many thanks
