    I arrived rather late for a sunset having missed a nice but I hung around anyway as is usually best as you never know what you may walk away from. This was back in July btw. It was rather dark when I left and I was glad for a decent head torch.

    I processed this yesterday what do you think?

    Love all the little highlights on the wet rock in the foreground, also the textures of the rock is really interesting. The rock in the immediate foreground (LH) almost looks like cobble stones then it moves to the smooth weathered areas quite a contrast.
    I like all the varying textures in this, and still some lovely tones on the horizon(y)

    That clear sky would have been a disappointment when you arrived surely, but well done on hanging it out to get a bit of colour.

    Thanks Terry I was searching for shapes and textures to use with the light I know the area quite well so knew what I was looking for.
    I am happy with the E-M5ii and the E-M1 as a combo for shooting landscapes

    Thanks Steve
    This is all pale yellow sandstone but the cobblestone looking rock is a layer of dark red softer rock that occurs

    Thanks Craig I was a bit dissapointed as I missed a decent sunset but hung around and this came along

    Thanks Jon

    Thanks Neil clouds would have been nice but this is what I to work with

    That cobble stone effect is from layers in the rock like this

    I think you were there at the right time Alf, love those colours post sunset and gives it the extra edge.

    Thanks Mal

    Thanks Scott I am really happy with the tones in that foregroiund they are the main reason it got off my HDD

    Thanks Paul
    It was almost dark I was glad of a decent head torch when walking up a beach of slippery rocks

    I have done some abstracts Steve and keep meaning to do more in fact that shot was part of a set I was playing with water moving acrossing this scene which have maybe should be processed.

    I have never really done any of that sort of work, no particular reason I guess, I have seen some spectacular landscape orientated abstracts, from coastal areas and rock formations etc. I'll have to put my mind to it a bit more when I'm out and about.
    It'll be interesting to see some more from the coast Alf(y)

    Hi Alf! yes they are looking lovely, the first one is excellent it's almost like smoke, that's a great abstract! I like them all some fantastic textures. No4 has a really surreal feel about it at first I thought it was the same shot as No3 but with the tide flooding in around the stones but now I see it's not. Sometimes it's hard to see where the smooth stores stop and the flowing water starts.
    Ther is great textures and colours in the last one, it's very captivating studying it.
    Nice work Alf, something I have not considered much until now. Thanks fo posting them!
    It also gives you another diamention to think about when you go out for a shoot.
    All the best
    Steve
