There's always someone worse off than you. I thought i was chancing it against a ferocious incoming tide. They got back just in time with some fish and a close call.

Fine coastal landscape, Alun, the stratified sedimentary rocks of the cliff face showing up so well in the prevailing light.

Like the evening light and tones in this Alun, good in rush in the foreground.

Great shot Alun Smile
Bad drills by the people almost stuck by the tide, another ten minutes and things could have been a lot worse than wet feet.

Lovely balance with the rocks echoing the shape of the cliff face. The little details are important as well, the scale of the figures and the strip of blue separating the tumultous water with the more peaceful clouds. Excellent image, Alun.

Thanks a lot for the feedback.
Ronnie - yes you're right about the limestone and shale cliffs. They are such a photogenic feature and can range from dark brown to bright saffron depending on the light.
Ryan - rather them than me. I remain amazed at the speed of the incoming tide along this stretch of the coast and at places like this and Nash Point there's no margin for error.
Dave - appreciate your comments a lot.

A top class image Alun - the wonderfully detailed foreground rocks really draw you into the frame and I like the texture and movement you've captured in the water. Although the figures are small, they provide an important focal point and give scale to the cliffs. Looks like they were pushing their luck there, unless they'd already rigged up a rope so they could abseil back up the cliff Smile

Anna

Thanks again, my friends.
Yung - yes you made this place your own with a daring composition as i recall.
Anna - they certainly were pushing their luck as there's no escape route the other side!
Annette - the usual filter mist but other than that it was fine.
Martin - If the waves don't get you a ruddy great lunp of limestone might. The base of these cliffs and ledges are dotted with reminders of past collapses and i've actually witnessed a few over the years. It makes me wary about getting too close to them.

Super as usual Alun. Excellent comp leading the eye from the foreground along to the cliff face and then horizontally to the figures.

It looks as if you were thigh deep in rushing water here Alun! I like the addition of the people on the rocks - and that sky is just stunning!

Thanks Ayoob, Derek, Ann and Barney. Big thanks to you Aidan for your UA. As for the forum name, I am a Welsh speaker and it simply means 'photographer' Smile
