Coastal Colours

By Jasper87  
Who knows who wrote that song of Summer
That blackbirds sing at dusk
This is a song of colour
Where sands sing in crimson, red and rust
Then climb into bed and turn to dust
.................... Kate Bush

I'm off up to Scarborough later today for a few days, no internet so this is a last post for a short while.
Reculver Bay in Kent again, an hour or so later than my previous from there. The sky really was this
glorious (as witnessed by DerekHansen in whose company I was privileged to be).

Needless to say tripod and remote release used, Iso200, 1/6s, f20, 15mm, and a couple of soft ND grads.

Many thanks to all, for the comments on my attempt at Mr Reynard, Pamela for her useful mod, and
Leon and Frank for their UAs. All very much appreciated.

A delightful composition with lovely detail in the sky.

This is a really lovely shot and I like it a lot - although, for me, it doesn't quite have the impact of your previous upright shot that I simply loved! Smile

I love that vapour trail - it gives a sense of movement, something random and dynamic streaking through the stillness.

Good foreshore lead in to the silhouetted castle, Dave and then to the subdued colours of the late setting sun. Excellent.

Enjoy your time away from the net. This is a wonderful low-light shot. Yes, the sky is magnificent but so is the detail in the foreground rocks.
Thanks again for including your tech info.
