Staithes Blues

By DaveMead  
Hi Folks,
A huge thank you for all the comments & clicks for 'Heather & Light' and especially for the UA's from Phil99 and John_Horner.

This evening's upload was taken a month or so ago at Staithes on the North Yorkshire Coast on a trip out with steviehutch and his mate Gary. Unfortunately, the promised clearish skies failed to materialise and Steve and Gary called it a night fairly early on. Having travelled further than them I decided to stick it out and was rewarded with occasional glimpses of colour but no light to speak of. Luckily, the rock formations at Staithes when the tide is out are fascinating and employing the Big Stopper and a bit of license in the processing this is what I've come up with. All kinds of comments are encouraged and appreciated and I thank you in advance for taking the time.

It looks like the weather is on the up so I hope you all have a happy and successful week.

Hi dave, I really like this one, i dont personally think you could have done any better here, If there had been a bit of a glow i think this would have made a super image but we are not always that lucky to get what we want, Anyhow good job done here. andy

How to make a photograph of almost nothing, nice one. I particularly like the contrast between the blue and orange.

A fascinating, unusual subject. The shapes of the rocks and the detail in the foreground contrast beautifully with the serene emptiness beyond.
