The strong winds were wiping the waves onto at Godrevy the rocks, where they exploded into great balls of spray, while I perched precariously on the edge of the slippery rocks, trying to remain upright while shielding the front of the lens/filter with the lee filter pouch.
Wipe the ND grad with the lens cloth - itself getting increasingly wet, and only able to smudge the sea spray around the filter - while protecting with the filter pouch. Then wait - for the light to shine, then the right wave to hit. Wait that bit longer as the worst of the spray whips past my face, then pull the pouch aside and take the shot. Quickly cover again, and 'clean' ready for the next shot. If I had any fingers free, then I would be crossing them hoping that the shots are working.
It's difficult working so slow when there is so much action going on, but it's the only way in conditions like this.
