The Snake & the Zebra

A few weeks back I took a walk on a very wet day along the coast down in Dorset. It was a very dull and wet day, but the whiteness of the crashing surf caught my eye as it snaked under a fantasic cliff, full of textures and detail until it disappeared out of sight in the rain/mist. It was these two basic elements that caught my eye, as a lover of both the sea and the rocks, and it was these key features I wanted to portray in this image.

 

Again taken whilst it was pouring with rain. In these conditions I ditch the Lee filters and switch back to my trusty B&W ND110 and put the lens hood back on the lens; this protects the lens a bit from droplets spoiling the exposure. A little tip, maybe obvious, but I hope that it helps someone out there.
