Hi Martin,

The shutter speed was 1/640 sec @ f9 at iso 400.
I use a tripod 99% of the time,but for these low angle shots I use a home-made type sledge support,which is basically a glorified sheet of wood aprox 18" long X 12" wide with an Arca Swiss ballhead attached.
This provides a solid support thanks to the suction of the wet sand,but more importantly provides an ultra low angle,and is easily manoeuvrable by sliding it along the sand while crawling along behind it.

F9 and you still got a nice blurry background, I guess thats down to the long lens. Sounds like you must get a bit wet to view that low, I like your commitment!
Thanks for the info

The blurred background is a combination of the focal length,which was 330mm for this shot and the low angle which keeps the background a fair distance away.
Yes you get soaked to the skin,even if wearing full waterproofs Smile LOL.
All good fun though!
