The weather down at Compton Bay Yesterday (14th October) was beautiful. I hadn't really planned this photo but as i was driving along thinking of where to go, i suddenly realised that it was almost low tide which meant the potential of low tide reflections. I checked Ventnor Bay out first but it didn't look quite how i would have liked so i drove across the island to Compton Bay and walked down the many many steps at the northern end of the Bay. At first i got a few shots with the clouds reflecting in the wet sand, but then i saw these beautiful clear pools of water with the clouds reflecting and some amazing ripples in the sand.
I used a polarizer to take out the glare of the clouds and to reduce some of the reflections in the water so that the sand ripples could be seen.

Hello Jamie,the over all composition works really well,taken from a good view point the reflections of the clouds add a great deal of interest and impact.
A cracking shot.

A very peaceful and pleasant scenery. The reflections of the clouds on the wet sand are very nice. Very good colours. You did well using a polarizing filter but they are hard to master with ultra wide angle and the sky brighter on the left than on the right. I had the same problem sometimes, hard to workaround it ;)
Thanks for sharing,
