Messing about on Newborough Beach last night, hoping for a decent sunset but making the best of what was available. Which in all honesty wasn't much.

So as I was tempted by some tree drag shots driving down to the beach, decided to try some horizontal drag shots of the sea, sky and far land mass.

Not everyones cup of tea, but an enjoyable hour or so and caused amusement to a few other beach dwellers as I had to keep taking a quick step back or risk even wetter trousers than I had already allowed.

Thanks all.

Not sure if the hotel will be quite so happy with the amount of sand that I deposited over the room as well off the camera bag and the trousers once they dried out Smile

Hi Cheryl,

I really like this. I've used the drag technique a few times on trees myself, however I've never thought of doing it with the tide. I must give this a go, as it's a really pleasing abstract.

Hope all is well, give my best regards to Lee and gang.

Regards, Adam.

Very different for you Cheryl and, I have to say, very pleasing.

Have to admit it was all a bit ad-hoc. Couldn't get the image envisaged on arrival because thick clouds engulfed the far mountains rather than fluffly white ones that would take on the colour of the sunset.

The camera was also pointing down somewhat so there is a bit of an arc to the horizon. But then again, it's not the sort of image that is about perfection.

Always said Simon that if I did do landscapes it would have to be with a twist.

Left Anglesey early this morning Adam as I had to pack and be up early for work tomorrow Sad Didn't win the lottery again!

As an abstract it works well, though I do have a slight urge to give it a little CCW rotation. However, if it's a Spot The Puffin competition then I have failed miserably.
