Sandymouth can be reached with ease via car and is only a short drive from Kilkhampton or Bude. At low tide this beach is stunning. It becomes a long open expanse of golden sand that stretches has far as the eye can see, interspersed with long finger like rock formations that have been worn away by the sea. The diversity of environments that this beach provides gives rise to a rich variety of life.

Très jolie prise de vue à marée basse et superbe lumière de fin de journée qui donne de merveilleuses couleurs. Excellente composition et la dispersion des rochers est vraiment intéressante.
Toutes mes félicitations et merci de ta visite,

Whoa! This is amazing!
The light coming in from the right side has illuminated the rocks and cliffs magically as well as giving some wonderful sky colours too.
Incredibly good depth of field and general sharpness with spot-on exposure and the most beautiful colours. The composition is lovely too.
Although your exif data isn't visible to us, I strongly suspect that this was taken on a rather longer exposure than we are used to seeing with your pictures - perhaps half a second or slightly longer - and with a narrow aperture.
Whatever the technicalities, this is one of your very best and, although the whole picture is wonderful, I think for me the real stars of the show here are the foreground rocks and their beautiful light.
P.S. Hope you don't mind, but I'm adding this to my "favourites".

very nice shot from coast line...like the play of soft light over the FG textured rocky stones...feel the calm situation here...

Hello Leslie - The composition works well, I like the nice diagonals created by the rock strata which are beautifully illuminated by the low sun. The FG rocks are not quite as crisp as they might be but an attractive image nonetheless. Warm regards rosemary

I reallty like this composition.The rocks form a triangular shape in fg and its always good compositionally to have a triangle or two. LOvely light and the colours are so attractive.This could be a painting.

a beautiful composition and captured in such an irresistable light. Love the clarity and detailing in the fg and the mixture of rich colours in the sky. Stunning!
Regards - Brian.

A nice shot of this beach with rocks at FG caressed by the golden light
A splendid sunset sky where blue and yellow blend well together
Have a nice evening

the colors and the light are wonderful, and gives a magical atmosphere to this beautiful place.

What a rugged coastline, bathed here in glowing sunlight! I like very much your description of the coast. There is really an otherworldly feeling as desolate as it, perhaps one of the moons of Saturn, rather than of Cornwall. Isn't Cornwall the area where Doc Martin is filmed?
