Following the clock change last week, I was really looking forward to getting up this morning for a spot of landscape photography, and I want to make the most of the next few weeks before sunrise gets really early again. I checked the weather forecast and it looked touch and go, but thought I’d get up anyway. So, come 5 o’clock I surfaced to look out of the window. Cloud. A quick check of the forecast again on the web. Cloud, to be followed by rain. Grumpily I went back to bed and dozed until woken by our 2 year old a few hours later.
I had the photography bug and wanted to get it out of my system, so I referred to my list of potential long exposure locations, and chose Axmouth. Having persuaded Helen that a family trip to the seaside was in order, I snuck the camera and tripod into the car boot and off we went.
For the umpteenth time this year I was not alone with my tripod, having to share a spot with the rather talented Mark Voce. However he was not impressed with the conditions and chose not to expose a frame on his 5×4 film camera which, having seen his web site, I’m probably quite grateful for.
These photos are my efforts from the day.
