Jurassic Rocks - Well Nearly !!

By Alan_Coles
Went for a drive yesterday afternoon and found myself heading for the coast - this time I actually made it...what happened - lovely afternoon and when I got there not a cloud in sight....*groan* Last time I went I forgot to check the tide times and had about 6 inches of beach to pay with! Time before, dull getting the picture yet - destined not to have"the nash experience" me reckons Sad Anyway, sat there scoffing a pie and deciding if it was worth walking down onto the rocks...which I did. Try some "wave hitting the rocks shots" Al I says to myself...took about 20 shots with quick glances on the LCD to see how it was by which time my wellies were nearly getting filled...shot 1 must have caught a water splash...yup, so did the other 19! Wipe down & general clean up and have another go - nothing inspirinfg me I think and after an hour clicking here and clicking there I wander back to the car...ah a nice reflection and the cliffs are glowing nicely I thought...blandm bland sky top left - no chance to crop without including when I got home I have pondered & pondered...and decided to have a go at photoshopiing a sky into the only image (well on a quick glance) that looks here tis !

PS The cloud was from a dunraven shot on my it was only along the coast a little way

Have a good weekend all.

Think you have done a great job, nice work. Looks like it's from another planet not just the sky the whole picture.

Love the narrative Alan. Sounds very much like trying to get bird pics. No-one said it had to be easy but now and then it would be nice !!
Great spot of PS with the sky.

You've done a good job here Al. The detail in the rocks is very interesting and the light on the cliff line very nice indeed. I like your choice of sky and am particularly pleased to see it working in the puddle. It looks realistic.
