Sunset and low tide near Cap Blanc Nez / Sangatte / Cote d'Opale

Check it out on black [L] or at 1280x850 pixels.

 

Brought my 1500 D700 shots of 16 days Cote d'Opale back to one thousand... plenty of missed oportunities, wrong settings, blown out skies, dirty lenses, waterdrops on the lens etc, etc. Duh!

 

About this shot

Tricky stuff walking along the French cliffs at sunset, you really need a tides table to avoid getting in trouble. 5 meters of water level difference, from smashing waves against the cliffs to an empty space of almost one kilometer, with a couple of surprises in between.

 

Not easy planning a sunset shoot. This is at a distance of over half an hour to the next beach/cliff stairs, no (smart)phone range here, not another soul in sight - and the water is too far away! Bugger!

 

I found out I *really* need to get my set-up of ND hard and soft grads!

 

THX for viewing folks! Faves and comments are always welcome! Have a nice day.
