My first upload from my trip to Porthoer whilst on Holiday 2-3 weeks ago.
I am a big fan of Joe Cornish and a member of the National Trust. This gives me great ideas for places to visit and this was one such case. Joe has photographed this place from a similar position to the composition I chose.

I wanted to include this foreground rock which is almost the symbol for this beach in images I had seen before.

I also wanted to get the sweep of the bay and that wonderful light on the RHS.

I am fairly pleased with the final attempt. I took a number of images during the sunset from different perspectives and I may upload further images of this place.

If you have not been to this beach it is a treat. It is a lovely beach for families (lovely soft sand, shallow sea and sheltered cove. It is not the easiest beach to get to but is still very popular.

My wife always thinks I try to find the most inaccessable places to photograph and I was beginning to agree with her the first day we visited. When we arrived on the beach we were amazed it was full!

Anyway well worth a visit whilst with the family and then wait for the people to pack up - to leave an empty beach and some great landscape photographic opportunities.

I was lucky on this visit as the weather had been reasonable but fairly bland. Then as the sun began to sink cloud formations appeared and some great light burst between them to give me some 15-30 minutes of great light...

1/30th second exposure @ f16. Lee Hard ND Grads.

Thanks for looking.

Nice shot, the only thing that spoils it for me is the person sitting on the rock to the right of the image.
