Yesterday we visited the spectacular cliffs at Hartland Quay with their incredibly contorted rock layers these are always worth a visit.
Although it was a little calmer yesterday in wild weather it is the perfect place to appreciate the power of the sea and wind as the waves crash against the cliffs and shore.

there is plenty of rough beauty in this image. The rugged rocks in the foreground create main point of interest and stormy sea adds to the whole atmosphere. I like how you managed to capture loads of dynamism in this scene despite simple composition.
Very well balanced colors and contrast.
Great photo! Thanks for sharing

Yes, indeed, there are some wonderfully dramatic and spectacular rock formations here and the rough seas have added to the raw wildness which you have captured perfectly in your photograph.
I'm amazed that this is a three second exposure but the effect is wonderfully dramatic and the smoothing effect of such a long exposure has not detracted from our ability to appreciate the huge forces of Nature.
Gorgeous light and colours, perfect exposure and excellent details and clarity.

You have managed to calm the rough looking sea a little with the long exposure time. I like the composition with the rugged coastline running off to the left giving the scene great depth. Lovely cool blue tones and superb sharpness throughout.

Like the dynamism created by the churning sea. Wonderful and unusual shades in the sky. The cliffs look like guardians out to protect the land against the rampaging sea. A spectacular shot looking into the open sea from your high POV. Well taken and thanks for sharing.

wonderfully atmospheric shot this. Love the glorious POV and the real sense of motion in the ocean :-). A beautiful vision of nature at its most exhilarating as opposed to wild and frightening. Love it!
Have a good week - B.

Hello Les - It is a treat for me to see this, I love the wildness of the North Devon coast and your shot reminds me of a day out I had with my brother many years ago. At that time he lived in Launceston so Hartland Point was but a short drive away. Your shot is excellent characterizing the rocky and wild nature of the coastline and your long exposure captures the boiling sea perfectly. Superb! Warm regards Rosemary

Happy that the weather yesterday was a little bit calm, after all the storms of the last month.
We see wonderful, the cliffs in foreground with these specially colours.
Sharpness and colour are pleasant to look at.
Composition and presentation make these picture attractive.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice week,

what a shot. Excellent composition. It is looking like a painting. I love the use of slow shutter speed. You got a fine result on the water surface with this 3 sec exposer. Great colours on sky. A superb one. Really enjoyable. Tfs.
