I shot this very early one morning, 5am, while on holiday. I thought I'dbe the only person there at that time of the morning but there were two other photographers there in the dark on the beach waiting for the early light. I spoke one of them, he said had driven down the day before from Southampton just to photograph the location. With that my sanity was confirmed, I do wonder sometimes about the length I go to get a photo!
This shot was taken using a ND Grad filter to bring out the early morning sky colour and balanec the exposure. But this was not the best bit of kit that shoot, it has to be the welly boots. The cause way in the foreground is only exposed at low tide and is soon covered up so unless you want wet feet wellies are essential.
