Training Day

16th June10, Embleton Bay, 8am

A fine morning for our small group to wander the beach and dunes at Embleton Bay. Nice to meet you all, I hope you took away some useful ideas and some nice pictures.

The sky was the striking thing early on. At times like this the sky seems to reach far back behind the horizon and it makes things on the ground seem small and insignificant.

The Coble is still in place fishing in the sparkling sea.

Our circular tour took us to the skaith at the start and end of the walk. I'm glad everyone noticed how different the light was an hour or so between visits. That's a Northumberland morning for you! These two shots were taken at much the same time and are just slightly different compositions.

This looks like a perfect day for your photography walk, Andy!

I hope you and your participants took some amazing photos and enjoyed the day at the beach with your favourite pastime.

Thank you for a most interesting day Andy. I was taken with your little compact and thought about investing in in an EP2. Then I saw that I could get a 25 mm pancake for my E30 for a bout 1/3 the price (which will take me back to my OM1 days). It won't be quite "compact," but should be a little less cumbersome than the full back-pack! Also, having great fun experimenting with ND filters - thanks for the tips.
