You could get killed standing there! People have.

Brave or foolhardy - doesn't matter much with such a good shot!

Don't worry Bill, I had Paul Sutton stood next to me, he's built like a sea defence barrier Wink

Beautiful composition, light and colours and you could not have captured the waves breaking any better, I'm sure: very well done indeed.

Love this image, I dream of getting something like this.
Can you tell me what settings the camera was on as all my waterfall pics are a disappointment.
Thank you
Elaine.

No probs Elaine:

- 1/6th second
- f16
- iso 50
- 2 stop hard ND grad filter over the sky (I'm guessing that bit)

Roughly speaking, I'd recommend a shutter speed between a 0.3 seconds and 2 seconds for water movement depending on how fast the water is, and how milky you like the water to look.

HTH

cheers

Like this a lot, slow shutter speed but no so slow that you lose all the definition in the water. This is brilliant, full of action.
