BLACK HOLE

1/2 second @ f11 | 100 ISO | 12mm | Hitech 0.6+0.9 GND | Tripod

 

Bank holiday Monday saw some decent sky at last. I was going to upload a few more shots from my little weekend up the coast, closey uppy arty stuff, before using this shot as my grand finale but I'm way too busy and just wanted to show this one ASAP. There are a few images being kept for a rainy day though.

This was the first time I'd been to Black Hole just south of Craster. There's a whole load of great coastal features I've yet to explore but I reckon this little spot is among the best. There really are some great rocks and I think I caught the tide at just about the right level though I'd have prefered it to be going out partly for better wet rocks and partly so as I wouldn't have been beaten into a retreat. It was all good fun though and, apart from a few spots on the filters, I managed to stay dry.

I've got more busy times ahead so, apart from trying to grab the opportunity to shoot some bluebells, camera time will be limited for a while and I'll not be on Flickr much.

Take care evryone and have a great weekend.
