Hi guys,
Can anyone suggest a good venue for seascape photography please,preferably within 2-3 hours drive of Manchester/East Lancashire area.I'm hopefully getting away for 2 or 3 days and would like to utilise my time away for some good shots while we've still got some fairly decent weather (!) left Wink
Cheers.......Jane

Hi Jane

Have you tried the Photo Locations page ?

I think with seascapes there are obviously areas with interesting formations, buildings etc. but there's also an element of when you go.

Just before sunrise and sunrise itself can give interesting light here on the east coast, then the evening light gives a whole new perspective. Lively weather also helps - decent weather for me is changeable with variety in the light and sky.

Classic coastlines and beaches are lovely but industrialised areas can offer something different.

I use a an OS map to look at possible locations.

Whatever you do check where the sun is rising and setting if that's the sort of shot you're after. I had read that a bay in Skye was great for sunset (funnily enough on a walking site, but that's by the by), and so I didn't check to see what angle the sun would be there. I got there, trekked a mile and a bit down to the bay, and discovered that the sun was setting so far past the headland on the right that my trip had been pretty much in vain, and I'd have got better shots from the campsite where I started *sigh*
