The Causeway

Legends abound from St. Michael's mount in Cornwall. But I can't be bothered to tell you about them! Here is a link so you can look them up, just for Dene.

Basically, you can walk across this stone causeway at low tide, and if you aren't quick you get stuck on the mount as the tide comes in.

 

I took this shot on Saturday evening, just as the tide worked its way along the ancient stones. I have been meaning to get an image of the mount at this magical combination of sunset and tide time. The sunset could have been more colourful, which is why I went there the next night too! Not much colour then either sadly.

 

This is a single exposure using a 3 stop reverse grad, used as a 0.9 hard grad as I don't have one, and a 0.45 s grad for all but the fg. I have plenty of other shots, but will spread them throughout the coming days so as not to bore you. Thanks for stopping by.
