Lovely sunny evening but no drama just a bit of haze on the horizon. Couldn’t get much inspiration so waited until sunset when the sun disappeared behind the haze and decided to to go for a dreamy take on the view before me. This is a beautiful little cove at the end of a lovely valley. The stone beach comprises of the most beautiful granite stones. It is illegal to remove any of them. There were 14 of us plus another 4 all trying to capture a nice shot. I decided to keep out of everyone’s way and climbed the small headland to take this shot. Apparently, I still spoiled someone’s photo! For those of you interested this was taken using a 10 stop neutral density filter at f 7.1 for 30 seconds with a 50mm lens – I then used Lightroom to drastically reduce the clarity and slightly altered the colours using the aqua and blue luminance sliders.
Below are 3 shots I took last year showing some of the granite stones.
