Another long exposure from Saturday evening down at Crosby with Fran. The previous upload from here was taken much much closer and about 35 minutes before this one, but the tide had quickly swamped that spot.

This was taken about 50 yards further back [inland], even so I had to cut this exposure slightly short as the tripod was in danger of being buffeted by the incoming waves.

4 mins 10 secs @ f8, ISO 100 + Lee BIG Stopper + 0.9 Hard ND Grad.

Cheers for dropping by, just off to make a nice hot chilli for dinner, catch up with y'all in a bit Smile

Utterly brilliant, Paul!
The perfect symmetry of your composition and unbelievable smoothness provided by the BIG JOBBY is beautifully counterbalanced by the distant off-centre post which, in my opinion, is what makes this extra special.

Dazzling work, mate!
