From the visit to Saltwick a couple of months ago, this is a different composition from the ones I've uploaded a while back, I hope sufficiently different. After climbing over those rocks I thought I'd better get my moneys worth.

Being really picky mate, I'd like to've seen a higher viewpoint, just so there was full separation between the nab and the wreck ... but top marks for the effort and the overall result.

Seriously Janet I don't recommend it, I won't be doing it Again! Tho I did have my mobile with me this time!

However I was pleased with the images I've got.

Just read Pauls comments: I noticed that when on the screen, but I won't be going back at high tide for a reshoot. I did compose it slightly higher but it was a case of moving tripod legs in the sea, took lots of WD40 to get those legs moving freely after this.

Like the details and tones in this Nick - certainly a brave person going out there with the tide on the return.
Do agree with Paul comments re the view point - but still a good capture that not many people will have.
Have a good weekend.
Regards Richard.

Like the viewpoint, and the way you've composed with the Nab sat in the middle of the twisted metal.

Find the burnt out areas a bit distracting though. But then again, it is the sun, and it is a bright shiny old thing!!LOL
