thrift westerley by sassaputzin thrift westerley by sassaputzin
To have this on my doorstep (relatively speaking) is a privilege i am reminded of every time i go to the wonderful coastline that surrounds Devon and Cornwall.

This is a nine minute exposure teetering over the edge you see, hunched over the camera to prevent the wind buffeting and ruining the exposure. Amazing how little the thrift flower heads moved in that time, ive also noticed some incredibly still seabirds who don't seem to move for the same length of time....thinking about it with a veiw like this to savour why move.

Shot with lee 3 stop soft grad and a lee big stopper which makes all the effort involved in getting to these places even more nerve racking. If there is good light and you elect to shoot long exposures you may get one shot, so not a lot of margin for error. this has its advantages in that it focuses the mind a little more, something ive needed recently within my photography.

All comments welcomed...

This picture is breathtaking! I like it very much, and this feeling of sweet strength too.
May I ask you where we can find this place exactly, please?

Again, this is great. The really long exposure works for me here. How much correction do you have to do with the Big Stopper's blue colour cast. It's a major drawback of the filter for me, removing a lot of the warmth from images. Here, the balance seems really natural

its easy to adjust andy, your adjusting the white balance (typically) so its up around the 10000 wavelength......

Very good Steve, this is a stunning composition. I am not sure you needed the massive exposure time though. My feeling here is that a few seconds would have been better.

I like it but the foreground does feel a little confused because there are two competing ideas. Still very nice though.
