Under the pier

It's hard photographing places that have been shot many times already, and so all the best compositions have been marked already. Clevedon Pier is one of those locations where I have visited on a number of occasions but never been very happy with what I have come away with. So the other night I met up with some mates and my plan was to come up with something different. So, this is my take on Clevedon pier, less conventional, but I think much more in my style. It was such a bright evening right up until sunset, with no clouds so was a complete nightmare trying to balance the exposure but I am pleased with how this has come out. I felt like a big kid climbing up the rocks to get under it, but it was well worth it, its such a beautiful spot.

 

I think it looks best on black at the larger size 'L'.

 

Have a great evening! :-)
