Time for a Change

By Hop-A-Long  
I am not very well today, I have got up this morning after probably the worst nights sleep anyone in the world could have had to what can only be described as a raging coldy, fluy type of thingy. I think I was up every half hour last night aching, freezing, sweating, headache, stomach ache, in fact you name it I had it, the trouble was they all came at the same time. Pretty bad.

Still, life goes on like in my photo, the tide waits for no man, this was taken at the exact moment the tide changed. I hear you ask "How on earth does he know that?". Well I'll tell you. I have an app on my phone, amongst the many that are on there, this app gives you exact mariner times for the tides. This was taken at the time of change from low tide to it heading in.
Shortly after this I noticed my tripod leg was becoming submerged, time to move as I didn't feel like doing a King Canute and hold back the impossible.
Now I mentioned apps on my phone, if anyone uses filters there is a very good app called "Long Time". Basically you meter your light without the filter, put in the exposure and then the amount of stops the filter is you are going to use and hey presto, it gives you the new exposure time, it doesn't half save counting stops on your fingers.

Anyway, I'm heading off for half an of Z's, so I'll see you later.

Hope you like this, thanks for looking and for any comments.

Love your composition, Andy. Sorry to hear about the bug, plenty of ZZZs is clearly what you need.
If an app exists for making the perfect cuppa every time, I bet you have it on your phone!!!
Get well soon

Beautifully observed, very well seen, composed, and captured from a great point of view. Whilst at the same time your 15 second exposure is provided a wonderful softness to the ebb and flow...

Moving upwards, from below the water to above the earth. My instinct would be to use portrait, landscape gives a greater feeling of space, it's less confined.
