Morning everyone !

Many thanks for your comments & clicks on yesterday's SEA RAGE, I noticed on the forum that some were having some problems seeing this image, because of an adult rating coming up on it, must be to do with teething problems with this new version. So thought I'd try another image to see if this is showing ok !

Took this shot yesterday, went back to Southerndown as there was a high tide. This is one of our favorite beaches, but every time we have been there, we have never walked over the rocks to the right hand side, which takes you around to a lovely little cove. Well, we made the effort yesterday, climbed over all the rocks and got there, we didn't realise how much the tide had come in whilst we were concentrating on taking shots, and found ourselves in a really difficult position on how to get back. I must admit, I was really frightened. Had to climb higher up the rock face to avoid the sea and waves, and then try to find another place that we could manage to climb down (Not easy with camera's & equipment). Certainly taught us a lesson !

Anyway - hope you like it and it was worth the effort !

Chris

If you find yourself in such a situation again have a look for the zig-zag path up the side of the cliff that'll lead you up to the path that runs by the side of the walled gardens at the top - it's further to the right of the view in your photograph.

God morning, Chris.
Another beautifully composed coastal scene, with good strong f.g interest and detail, and with the breaking waves nicely captured.

Amazing light and wave action, you do have to remember the sea doesn't stand still for long Chris, a scare will have concentrated your mind never to let that happen again. Be careful my friend.

Stunning image, Chris, the lovely sidelighting picks out the foreground rocks very nicely. So glad you didn't get washed away with the tide!

Love those waves lapping the rocks. Gentle movement but you've captured texture in the water.

I know I'm not supposed to criticize until I can do better, but...

I think the composition would benefit if the top of the photograph were to be cropped, just a tad. In my opinion, there is too much clear blue sky. Hang on, wait a minute, what am I saying? Can you have too much clear blue sky?

Very well taken, Chris. As this is a second home to me I know exactly what you mean. The tidal range along the heritage coast is massive and it's easy to get caught out at Nash Point and Dunraven so you wouldn't be the first by a long chalk. The other danger here is the oft heard rumble of thunder as the limestone blocks collapse from the cliff face. It's scared me several times when I've been there alone with my back turned to the cliffs. The coast at Monknash is a bit easier because you have the escape route up the wooded valley. Be careful m8. I want to see a lot more shots like this Grin
