Rugged Coastline by pasttheirprime

Rugged Coastline

Taken from on top of the harbour wall in Hope Cove during our recent family holiday, this is a very long exposure shot taken through a sheet of welding glass adapted to fit my ultra-wide sigma 8-16mm lens via a home-made contraption I knocked up in my shed... The welding glass turns everything deepest green, so a B&W conversion is necessitated. On this occasion the tide was fully out, and the harbour wall was exposed to a height of at least 16' (about 5 metres in new money) - and I don't much like heights. The top of the wall was fairly narrow, and devoid of any hand rail or similar, so for me this was an uncomfortable shoot! I took 7 shots in total, each about 2 minutes in duration, so was there rather longer than I would have preferred!

I would have liked to have seen a few clouds in the sky (merely from a "photographic interest" point of view), but we couldn't fault the weather from a Holiday perspective!

Sincere thanks for all your kind comments and Fav's for last week's "Galaxy" shot - the feedback was hugely appreciated!

See you next week!

Such bravery. But what a result! Worth every bottom numbing moment. Hope there were ice-creams all round afterwards.
