Rocky...

Some of the best beaches on Earth I dare say reside in a stretch of land in the south-western part of England - Cornwall. I always loved rocky beaches and back home I would try and get to some beaches which had some small arrangement of rocks some where...but when I went to Cornwall, I couldn't believe my eyes that there were so many beautiful beaches one after another from Looe to all the way to Bude.

 

It was a pretty tough trip mainly because the weather was not too good but I braved through the weather and managed some decent outings. There are plenty of photo ops and Cornwall is one place one should visit if they are in the UK. We were jokingly saying its a poor man's Scotland as there were many beautiful beaches that can be rivaled only by the pristine Scottish beaches.

 

'Nuff Said! This was shot in a quiet little beach called the Mullion Cove near Lizard. I loved the turquoise waters and the rocks that were peppered along the coast. The light was a bit tricky and the exposure I was aiming was difficult to pull off at that time of the day but nonetheless gave it a shot. This is just one RAW image developed in Lightroom. Its been a while since I did multiple exposures..gone are those days I guess...For some reason, the EXIF is not giving the details I desire..anyway here it is..

 

203secs@F11/11mm/ISO 100

Adjustments Made in Lightroom- ISO increase and fill lights added in the foreground to compensate for the dynamic range.

 

Thanks for viewing and have a nice week everyone!
