After a short break last week I wanted to share a new Friday Image. This was taken just over a week ago in Cornwall. We went down to St Ives which is a lovely Cornish village if you have never had the opportunity to visit. The light there is amazing and some of the atmospheric effects at sunset can be spectacular.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Someone recently sent me a link to a competition. I don’t normally enter these but thought I would give it a shot seeing as how one of my favourite subjects is the sea. Here is the link for anyone out there who is interested in trying their hand also. The compertition is being run by

There are also some cracking pictures on the judges site so well worth a look.

    Tremendous photograph!
    I don’t suppose you have the same view taken without the 0.3 ND Grad filter – just in the interest of eductiong me?

    Keep up the good work.

    That’ll be EDUCATING.

      Sorry I don’t. To be honest I could have shot it without the filter. Because I was shooting raw and there was a good reflection of light on the water I could have balanced the lighting in lightroom with the grad tool. Too many years shooting slide film educated me to always try to get it right in camera.

    Gorgeous! Just the right amount of color to feel peaceful and real. How wonderful that there are those 3 little boats to lead you in. Love it.

      Thank you. I have to admit that there were five boats in the original but two were overlapping and looked a mess. They had to go.
