... shortly after this one was taken a big swell caught me slightly off guard and gave the filters a bit of a soaking, then the sun began to dip but the shot was on the memory card and it was time to move to another spot - persistence rewarded [this time] Smile

This shot was taken on the second evening of our stay at Cape Cornwall and in the distance you can make out the distinctive shape of the Brisons on the horizon. Continuing to upload in order taken!!!

Cheers for looking in ... got plenty more from the week to come Grin

EDIT: My apologies, just noticed I'd put a space in the title whereas it should just be one word - my bad Grin

Well, you know how those camera screens never do them justice Bill Wink Grin

Needed a little bit of fettlin' to get rid of the sea spray, flare and lift the shadow detail in the fg a little ... but nothing too strenuous Smile

Ta guys,

The odd soaking is a w/a lens, coastal togging hazard I guess, Paul. Worth it for this fine image though. I've concluded btw that the only way to clean salt sprayed filters quickly on location is to use fresh water and one of those e cloths that come in pairs like the granite polishing set. Big cloth smears the water around and lifts off salt, fine weave e cloth polishes it up nicely. Prior to this I wasted a lot of precious eclipse fluid and the like. (This mind bogglingly marginal gem was brought to you by Tynnwrlluniau who needs to get a life Grin )

Cheers Alun, hopefully your comment will go green ... I know it's not necessarily critique, but it's bloody good advice all the same. Am I right in saying that my Showcase in this months DSL Photography is backing your spread???

Thanks guys,
Paul

Good tips, Alun!
Just checked it in amazon. There are so many types. Which one is most suitable?

What a stunner. Only time I have seen light like that recently I have either been on a train or the planes have all stopped flying.
