Kimmeridge Bay - Ledges

By How1e
Tripod, Remote Release, Manual Ex, Spot metered on foreground, Sigma 10-20mm, 8ND Grad.

The sun was setting and the daytime crowds had departed. I sat with my wife enjoying the peace and tranquility of this beautiful location. The high spring tide was covering the ledges, so I set up my gear at what I thought would be the last of the rocks to be submerged. Then the first one arrived and then another. Before I knew it the place was full of photographers jostling for a position. One even tried to set up in front of my camera. In the year I have been doing this I have never seen another photographer never mind having to compete with a crowd of them. Nightmare. Needed a beer after that.

Very beautiful. The exposure is spot on (spot metered after all!): not too heavy on the water blur and just enough of it to give a smooth appearance to the image.
