  • Here comes the darkness, after investigation, although this effect is bumped by increased contrast curves, the darkness is due to the angle of setting sun and the circular pol filter, I have more pictures that use this to much nicer effect.

Stones, Crosby beach. Explore

Newer Older

Another from the muddy boots and loaf of bread session, post sundown at Crosby. (possibly not the last, sorry, I will start apologising for them)

So I think I’ve said before in ‘Flat’ that the thing about Crosby beach is that ‘s totally flat, well as you saw from the slope in the pano, it does have a natural run away slope.. but still no rocky features that would add interest and catch swirling water nicely.... However there are two places that I know fairly smallish rocks collect... I don’t know if these are debris from the foundations of pipes and such like or what, there is one collection between Crosby and Blundelsands, and another pile here at the end of the pipe that has featured in many of the pictures recently.

You can see a mile marker, in view and also, when seen on the full size image, Perch Rock light house and fort over on the Wirral, with the hills of Wales beyond, I don’t expect any of that to be appreciated at this scale though.

Be warned if you want to attempt shots here or beyond, check tide times, it does come in very quickly, if you see it coming, you would not reach shore without swimming... also wear very tight fitting boots, I near lost mine here, so I will suggest that I’ve risked life and limb to show this picture :)

Incidentally the darkness is as the camera saw, there is no vignette, although added contrast accentuates the effect, the light post sun down has extreme contrast and and is highly polarised, with little diffused ambient light, very wide angle lenses with these filters often 'suffer' from this as direction of the polarised light coming from different parts of the sky reach the camera. I do have other pictures featuring this effect which I may share, if you are really interested let me know.

Have a great day!
