Photographer's Note

385 - thats the number of spots of dust Ive just cloned out of this shot!! I tried to clean my camera sensor for the first time in May but somehow got it all wrong and ended up with more dust than I could even imagine on the sensor. But I cleaned it while I was staying away on location and so didnt know the full extent until I got home. So photos from this trip will be few and far between as each one takes so long to clean. I love dslrs, but I really dont love cleaning them!!!

The shot was taken at Porth Nanven beach which is about 5 miles from Lands End in cornwall. The island on the horizon is named The Brisons and features in many photographs from this area. The beach is an incredible place, with lots of variation over a small area. This part, the sandy part was littered with huge rounded boulders. I got to the location in the afternoon and waited for sunset when I knew the scene would be at its best. Unfortunately the sunset was pretty dull that evening, but the incoming tide and low light combined to make the location appealing to photograph. I always get wet boots when I photograph by the sea as I always get a bit too close to the action. So for my birthday I got a pair of wellington boots which I tried out here. They were wonderful, meaning that I wasnt restricted to standing on boulders away from the incoming waves - I could get right up close and choose the best foreground for the shot. Unfortunately even wellington boots arent enough protection for the unpredictable cornish waves and it wasnt long before a wave went up and over my wellies, soaking me once again!!
