Through The Gap ...

By sut68      
This was the shot on Saturday evening that had me convinced the tide was actually coming in rather than retreating ... needless to say, I didn't last long in this spot Wink

Another from Llanddwyn Island, just as the sun began to poke from under the cloud bank for a brief while.

Cheers for your support on the previous two, I hope you like this one too ... thanks for getting to here Smile

it pretty much has everything ticked in my boxes, probably your best this year IMHO, cracking capture mate
Great light across a fine composition Paul, the little traces o colour along the edges of the wet boulders are quite superb.

Up close and personal with Mother nature, brave man Paul but it was worth it, superb capture.
Would like to have seen the clouds have a tweak more contrast in them just to give it a bit more punch and balance up with those wonderful boulders in the F/G but that is just my opinion, honest, plus want to get back on your Christmas card list Wink

You've got a long way to go there Stewart ... Tongue

Personally I'm happy that the levels in the shot represent the available conditions, tweaking the sky isn't a concern for me as there wasn't a great deal of definition in those clouds - just boring whispy ones Sad Had there been some nice big Cumulus clouds then maybe.

Thanks everyone for your time and great comments ... glad you all like this one too Smile

Paul

Just composed > metered > set exposure > gradded > added 2 stop ND > shoot ... job done Smile

Oh, almost forgot to say ... sh*t meself after huge wave nearly swept me off my feet > hastily moved to higher ground > put filters and camera away > retreated over precarious rocks > set up somewhere safer Wink

That's about it ... apart from a liberal sprinking of the Warehouse Express photographic pixie dust that is Smile
