Peninnis Breakers

By pmorgan  
It makes a change for me to shoot during the day, but the seas and skies of Scilly certainly make it worthwhile.

A polarizer and ND Grad were used here to make the most of the movement in the water.

This is looking the opposite direction from my previous upload at Peninnis Head.

Thanks for all previous comments and clicks, and for the kind words on the PP cover!

Off to process some more now, as the weather has ruined any other plans!

Love the exposure on the water (again) Paul.
The interest from the sea and the tomes in the rock has made up for the flat light. I wonder how this would work in Black and White?

The fact that the area is called Peninnis Head always makes me smile too Tom!

thats excellent, i didnt realise you could get polarizers and ND's on at the same time!?
pmorgan 9 217 13 England
18 Aug 2008 1:56PM
I use the cheap Cokin filter system Joshua, it's not ideal, but you can use all 3/4 slots at once if you needed. my polariser is a slot in type, not a screw fit.

Thanks for the kind words people! Smile

It's all been said above but love the mood and the blue in the water Paul. Coming down to Cornwall on Friday for a few day so fingers crossed the weather improves!

Staying in Porthleven just west of The Lizard don't suppose you've got any tips for top photographic spots???
