The last in my Clearing Storm sequence from my unplanned Clevedon shoot, last Saturday.

I had hoped that the sky would do this when I first arrived here.
And the planet obliged very nicely.....

It's my personal favourite from what turned out to be a technically tricky shoot, what with humungous spray, ferocious winds and a very hungry wife.....It's currently occupying the top spot in my favourites list in my pf, too.

Five stops of grad and two exposures (0ev and -2EV) were required to contain the sun god and his fiery chariot after his release from his cloudy prison.

Very busy today and we've got weekend visitors from Oop t' North so I'll have very limited access to my pc...so will catch up when I'm able.

Thanks very much to those who have dropped in for this sequence and for your votes and comments. They are very much appreciated (even yours, Paul Tongue)

I hope you enjoy this one as much as the others. They all led to this moment!
Have a great weekend and may the light be with you Smile

Cheers

Bill

Very dramatic!Grin
And so pleased to see the final here in the series,
before I set off to try and emulate some of your Cornish wonders Bill
Love the colours here but the slowed up waves do it for me
can now see why you kept getting sea spay!!!

Have a great week

Wonderful dramatic image - you`ve caught the waves perfectly, and your use of filters and blending is seamless

Superb series and a grand finale, Bill. You've struck gold with the conditions, coped with them admirably and come out with some tremendous images. Worth all the accolades you have and will receive.
