I spent a couple of hours exploring the amazing rocks at this incredible location on the north coast of Spain, finding new opportunities as the tide came up. Unfortunately this was my only visit to this place and the conditions weren't kind - as we approached the coast the sun disappeared and the sky washed out to an almost featureless white (although there was some subtle detail there if you underexposed it). To add to the difficulty of getting a shot I was happy with, I smashed my most-used grad on the rocks half-way into my session here, so had to resort to blending exposures for the rest of the trip... Although I'm not completely happy with this image, it's the best I have from this place so thought I'd share it. I had a blast walking along these lines of rocks and the location reminded me of the amazing Mupe Bay in Dorset - and given the conditions I had to keep reminding myself that this was Spain, not England!

 

The shot:

- Canon EOS 5D Mark II

- Canon EF 17-40mm f/4 L USM @ 20mm

- 30 seconds @ f/8, ISO200, Manual mode

- B+W Circular Polariser and Light Craft Workshop LCW ND500MC 9-stop ND filter (actually 8 stops)

- Manfrotto 190XB tripod with 322RC2 joystick grip ball head

 

Processing:

- WB and tonal adjustments in Adobe Camera Raw

- Second raw conversion for sky detail blended in

- Noise reduction with Noiseware Professional plug-in

- Selective Curves to darken the sky

- 50% grey layer for a little dodging and burning

- Contrast boost with a Gradient Map layer in Luminosity mode

- Resized and sharpened with Smart Sharpen

The continued obsession with a blue filter processing with a 0.3s exposure to keep the sea a little textured whilst retaining some detail.

 

I'm very pleased to announce a book of my Sea Fever images which is to be published by Triplekite Publishing. Copies can be pre-ordered from seafeverbook.co.uk. A selection of some of the images can be seen under the Sea Fever set

I first saw this amazing scenery in a photo by the very talented Iñaki, and when I realised it was close enough to where we were staying to be able to visit for an evening I knew I had to go. Aside from this incredible rock formation ("The Cathedral"), the place, which sits between the fishing town of Bermeo and the smaller village, Bakio, is also home to the historic chapel of San Juan de Gaztelugatxe - a small hermitage which sits alone atop a small rocky island connected to the mainland by a narrow stone footbridge. The chapel itself is nearly one thousand years old and has featured in a number of historic events throughout its life. There is also a second island close by, called Aketx/Aketze, which also makes a good photographic subject. I had a great time shooting around the whole area until darkness and an oncoming storm forced us to leave...

 

The shot:

- Canon EOS 5D Mark II

- Canon EF 17-40mm f/4 L USM @ 28mm

- 3 bracketed exposures of 8, 15 and 30 seconds @ f/10, ISO200, Manual mode

- B+W Circular Polariser (no grads as I'd broken the one I'd have used, and no ND filters as I'd lost my cable release so couldn't do bulb exposures)

- Manfrotto 190XB tripod with 322RC2 joystick grip ball head

 

Processing:

- WB and tonal adjustments in Adobe Camera Raw

- Three exposures hand-blended using luminosity masks

- Selective Curves to darken the foreground (I wanted the long exposure for the smooth water but this left the foreground unnaturally bright)

- 50% grey layer for dodging and burning through luminosity selections

- Contrast boost with a Gradient Map layer in Luminosity mode

- Colour adjustment with Selective Color

- Colour boost with a Hue/Saturation layer through a saturation mask

- Global Curves layer for a bit of "pop"

- Resized and sharpened with Smart Sharpen

Very long exposure at blue hour, just a few moments before dawn, on a cloudy and warm day.

 

These large rocks in the sea, known as "The Friars", create a totally magical place.

 

I must admit, that as a first impression, it's like meeting with some gods still asleep.

On a rather dull and overcast evening at Kynance Cove I decided to take a few images with the ten stopper. I was amazed at the resulting turquoise colour of the foreground water. Presumably, the long (63 second) exposure eliminates the surf and swash and reveals a shallow layer of sea water covering fine golden sand. Thanks for looking.

at La Perouse, Sydney, Australia.

God loves you.

I wanted to get a long exposure of this one but gale force winds, sea spray on the lens and severe camera shake put a stop to that.

 

This is by far the moodiest weather I've experienced when shooting down on the south coast, but I loved every minute of it!

The cold water of the English Channel vigorously hits a rocky beach on the Normandy coast, while in the distance a powerful storm unleashes pouring rain and dark clouds upon the sea.
