Headed into Bude, and the sky looked good for a fantastic sunset. 20min later, and I was in Sandymouth, and a big blob of grey cloud had appeared on the horizon, and looked like it was going to stop play. However fortunately just enough light managed to sneak through to make it worthwhile.
It was high tide, so there was not a whole lot of sand on show (for beach called 'Sandymouth'), but the coastal scenery was superb.

Like your low view point and the incoming waves look liked they are about to swamp you.

a very impressive image, nicely composed, with great contrast between the smooth movement of the water and the crisp detail of the rocks. My only slight critism is the large dark rock/hill to the right of the image is a little distracting,

Great water movement and spray make for a really impressive FG.

Yes, kept the feet dry (just)

I fully agree Ben. It is quite frankly, incompetent usage of the grad filter (and yes, I have done a lot of remedial work in this area in post). I can say that it was a difficult spot to crouch and balance, and keep camera & self dry - and I could not quite see what the camera was doing.... but in truth I messed it up.
