A few from my local beachline
Posted By: Gareth, 06-17-2015, 03:07 PM

All taken with the K5ii and the DA* 16-50mm. Saw that high tide was after the kids were in bed so managed to pop out to my local beach for a quick few images. The weather? It started foggy and damp with everything getting soaked through due to the fine mist but then it started raining and it rained pretty good! Fair to say the weathe rproofing has been throughly tested!

Wow, long exposures too. Looks like it was windy. Very descriptive shots.

I've loved these shots, but the Swansea Tourist Board might charge you with unnecessary meteorological accuracy.

Really like number 3, the B&W and long exposure really works well.

I agree, I really like #3. Looks like an eerie fog creeping up the steps.

Thank you all! It was rather wet and nasty weather but it recorded lovely!

Gotta feeling these steps are taking over you life, seem to have seen them somewhere before.

Liking from image 3 and upwards, where your steeping off into the clouds, great captures.

Nice series. The long exposure shots - done in very late light or was an ND filter pressed into action?

Cool series. Interesting to see the differences in feeling stemming from the shutter speeds and color vs B&W.

What's the history of that staircase? Metal railings built out into the water like that seems like a swimming hazard.

Nice photos. #2 does a good job showing the flow of water. #3 looks like it belongs in an old horror movie. #6 is my favorite.
