Weather forecast for this morning looked set for a decent sunrise, and it’s at a manageable hour at this time of year, so I headed across to Newbiggin-by-the-Sea. I have never really tried Newbiggin for photos much so a quick scout of Google Maps and I picked out this concrete breaker that looked worth a visit. The tide was heading out so there was no chance of me getting caught out. I’ve added the spot to my Photo Locations page if you’d like more detail.
I wasn’t there long – these dark clouds quickly rolled in across the clear skies and the sun was hidden by a low band of cloud along the horizon. But long enough to take this photo – an exposure of 30 seconds, with a 0.9 (8 stop) ND filter and a 0.6 (4 stop) hard graduated ND filter for the sky. As normal, very little is done in Photoshop – just some sharpening and a slight boost in contrast.
I think I’ll add Newbiggin to my list of places to visit – I had a good walk along the rocks to the north east of the village and there looks to be some great spots fora higher tide.
Feel free to have a look through my Water photo gallery, where you’ll find this photo and a number of others.
