dull but interesting

9th February11, Embleton Bay, 8am

Training today with Stephen. Very nice to meet you and thanks for the mac tips! Weather a bit miserable but the grey skies were not entirely without interest.

First though we came across these mesa-like mini pillars of sand. Sand has been deposited by wind and high tide and then the rain has caused a flood and the river has cut through the sand. Very hard to get an angle/composition that shows them to their best. Here's my best attempt.

A lonely limestone boulder stands out amongst the black 'cannonball rocks' below the castle. A high contrast scene requiring two exposures with subsequent combination in Photoshop.

A gentle, soft sky out over the sea requiring no effort whatsoever.
