Manual 365/355.2 Still Optimistic

This morning was amazing, the beach was perfect and the sea was alive. No one apart from the dog and his owner and a brilliant sunrise I’m going to have to spend a couple of hours later getting all of the shots sorted and into a google album. I’ll post the link here tomorrow but in the mean time here’s one I couldn’t not post. Everything was going great so I pushed my luck, dropped my camera to ground level and shot the incoming foam…dsc_5761Living close to the edge… (wet, sandy camera! ūüėČ

Now, Off to Mwnt!

Peace Peeps! xxx


Manual 365/352 *Waves* Croeso Nol!

dsc_4227Memories from the¬†summer but we’re just around the corner from here, unpacking and getting ready to spend the next two weeks shooting, chillin’, drinking, eating and shooting some more and ok, I really don’t expect August Sunrises in December I’m sure there’s going to be something special!

Heddwch Peeps!

Manual 365/248 What?!?

“More Seascapes!!!” I hear you cry!¬†DSC_1561-Pano-EditFraid so Peeps, been a lazy, lazy day looking through some of my shots from the last week and having a pano fest! I loved the colour from yesterday morning but my other love is moody skies in black and white, so… I’m indulging myself one last time before I go back to work. I hope you don’t mind!DSC_1567-Pano-EditDSC_1644-Pano-Edit.jpg

I have put, what I consider my best shots from Aber Porth into an album on 500px, take a look and you can see a lot of my other work on this site too. Go look, see! ;o)

Peace peeps! xxx

P.S. Graham is still set to complete his JOGLE tomorrow,an amazing feat! There’s still plenty of time to donate.

Manual 365/247 Good Morning!

To those of you in the UK, if you were awake around quarter past 6 this morning and heard a high pitched squealing emanating from the West, I apologise, that was me not containing my excitement as the sun rose…DSC_4225I couldn’t sleep¬†so I¬†decided to squeeze as much time as I could out of this wonderful place¬†and went down to the beach to get yet more long exposures. I wasn’t expecting this…DSC_4228Oh, and if you heard another noise about 10 minutes after the first, that was me getting my foot wet trying to get back to shore, the tide can catch you out if you’re not careful. So, two lessons learnt this morning.

    1. Stay aware of your surroundings
    2. Get up early and get out there.

Techy bit on the photos:

The first, 18mm@ f/22, 2 sec ISO100. I have used the brush tool in lightroom to bring down the exposure on the sky slightly and the second, same as the first apart from shutter speed was upped to 1 sec,  basically as shot with a tiny bit of tweaking.

Have a great day.

Peace Peeps! x
