Coming out of lockdown: Felixstowe Dawn

At the beginning of April 2021, as UK lockdown#3 began to lift, I headed for the nearest coastline from my home for a grey, pre-dawn photoshoot, with my FujiFilm X-T3, and shooting b-roll with my brand new DJI Pocket 2. I made some long exposures of Cobbold’s Point at high tide, some ICM (Intentional Camera Movement) studies of the beach, and some beach hut “street” photography.

When Castell Coch is too far away to shoot….

Hi there – I drove up to Castell Coch near Cardiff yesterday and managed to not get a decent shot of the castle. But I did shoot two or three nice woodland scenes. This is just a three minute video which you might like. If you do, a “like” in YouTube really helps the channel.

Now, back to editing my pictures from Venice.

The Song of the Sea, Nanjizal

Nanjizal is about a two mile walk along the coast from Lands End. It is a beautiful beach, not easily accessible, and with no facilities. But it has this beautiful fissure through the rocks and a tidal pool that fills and empties with the tide. I was chest deep when I took this. I would love to sit out a complete tide cycle here to explore how differently it can look as the tide changes. One for another day. I hope you enjoy this one.

St Ives Harbour at Dawn

After quite a few grey days, the forecast for the next morning was great, so at 04:20 I set an alarm and went down to the harbour for some blue hour and sunrise photography. I was pleased to find the tide was out but there was still some water across the harbour. This meant that the boats were not afloat (and therefore liable to move on the water during long exposures), and the sunrise was a treat.
