I am just back from 10 days holiday - at least 14 beaches, a gazillion steps/boardwalks/sandy tracks/stone or concrete ramps and miles of soft sand beaches.
Here are a few samples;






























If you are still with me, the steps at Cape Schanck number 230 (or close to it) plus seemingly hundreds of metres of fairly steep boardwalk and preceded by lots of metres of steep gravel path/steps.

A very lovely series. I cannot get enough of landscape/seascape photos and I like all of these. I would like to know if you used a CPL or a CPL along with an ND filter with a medium to high number. Again, really beautiful.

Thanks,

So you'll be glad to get back to work for a rest then...

Notice you managed to get the places all to yourself, I must admit that's my kind of holiday, "Far from the Madding Crowd", phrase courtesy of Thomas Hardy.

Thanks Tony.
No filters apart from a UV filter (and I'm never sure if it makes any difference anyway - but it does keep sand and salt water off the lens).
I had a full compliment of ND and CPL with me (mostly left at my accommodation!) but I rarely put then on.

On the 5th image, there is someone!!
(OK it is my wife, who doesn't do 'steep' very well - so most of the ups and downs was solo.)

I did include people in some images, but didn't choose any for this thread.
Actually I might have taken more images of dogs than people; there was a dog friendly beach near our accomm, and I really enjoyed watching dogs play and chase and fetch. Perhaps I could start a new thread?

BTW, KD, did you notice the SAND? Copious quantities of sand! No pebble/flint beaches here.
And did you notice the blue colour in the sky (in some of the images)?

Forgot to mention that I am retired - so not back to work, except to tidy up the garden, get the church books up to date, process some images.

Aye I did, but just you wait... I've got reason go to the Isle of Harris... where both Seilebost and Luskentyre beaches are to die for, watch this space.

Saw that too, but not so much of the old "Currant Bun" in evidence.

We did have a few duller days, but I might put up a sunset or two to prove that the sun was in evidence - you don't get a sunset without a sun!

There's me thinking "Down Under" was the land of eternal sun, not like here... the land of eternal grey and wet.

You don't have the monopoly on that, the sun broke through yesterday for about 10 minutes but its back to normal now the rain last night flooded half the country and at least 2 of my kids were unable to get to work this morning.

Hi Rod
A place I have to get too
I only get as far as Geelong so I can "see you" from the otherside.
Boardwalks are everywhere now which is good because we are not excluded from areas anymore.
Thought I would answer you here instead of the Alphabet Race

I wonder how you achieved the dark sky in #13. I have found I get better results with Promaster UV Haze filters. I did a comparison test taking the same scene sans any filters and then taking a shot with the Promaster and there is a slight but noticeable difference in that it is a little cooler (temperature wise) looking shot. So the Promaster is doing its job.

thanks again,

TT
