iso 100Raw, f22 1/3 sec @12mm, Polarising filter used.

Taken from the path leading to Worms Head a few days ago. Only one or two people had ventured down to the beach, no doubt because even though the sun was shining it was as cold and windy as a winters day. After taking a couple of shots I was glad to get back to the shelter of the car.

Love the effect of that sweeping sandy bay topped by the cloudy sky.

Thought I recognised this location from the thumbnail! Isn't it the most STUNNING part of the world for photography? If this were mine, I might take a bit off the green base - and I would have been inclined to wait for that cloud shadow to push off! Still like it, though!

Great composition leading to a very busy sky. Fabulous location, I agree with previous comment, I would crop away some of the foreground. Be careful if you do, don't crop to traditional ratio like 6x4, this IMHO would spoil your photograph. I would suggest you crop off 25% from the bottom.

Hope you find this helpful.

I agree about the cropping but this is a lovely shot of one of my favourite places.

Nice one Anthony, I love this place too.
The Sigma 10-20 is a fantastic lens isn't it, takes some getting used to though, it's soooooo wide.
Well done.
Geoff.

Good composition: lovely lead in round the bay, coupled with a good sky.

This has wonderful depth, colour and perspective - and the sky is superb

Excellent viewpoint. I agree about the crop but I like the cloud shadow on the beach.
