Ness Beach

By RockArea  
Shaldon's Ness Beach is accessed through a tunnel, romantically called Smuggler's Tunnel, as you might expect. It was still dark when I arrived so I entered stealthily never knowing whether the footsteps I heard might be cut-throats bringing in contraband on the morning tide. No, just a dog walker with two Jack Russels.

The tide was still high when I got to the beach so I got down low behind some rocks and waited as the sky lit up.

Thanks for your attention, your comments are always appreciated.

Great simple set up very effectively leading out to sea and that lovely light. The boat on the horizon provides a good hook for your eye. Being slightly picky the FG rock looks a bit noisy in the shadow areas but that may just be when the file was downsized for web? Otherwise I sometimes find recovery of shadow in the RAW conversion might causes this. It's picky as I said! Smile

A wonderfully composed, exposed and crafted lowlight photograph, captured from a great point of view.

Thanks for your comment and picky's fine with me. I did take a huge range in one exposure and wished I'd bracketed as I did on many of the others on the shoot but not this one.

Thanks all for your comments!
