The Spinners

By Dave_Henderson    
A blend of three shots with the same settings I took on the beacon rocks last week.
Trying to produce a more dramatic shot by using splashes from the three exposures. My next few trips to the shore will be used to shoot a load of splashes taking this blending malarky a stage further.
The three lads on the rock edge were spinning for mackerel.

The large version is wetter.

Terrific Impact Dave ~ Excuse the Pun....
For me this is the Ultimate in Seascapes to see the "Cruel Sea" in all its glory.
Excuse the Imagination but the guy on the end of the rocks for me emulates the front of a Viking ship if you study closely and just about to set sail into the Sunset?
Beats the Dead Calms hands down!
