Photographer's Note

Whitecliff bay near Bembridge is the most easterly bay on the Isle of Wight.
It has a nice stretch of sandy beach with rocky ledges at both ends and a huge cliff at the southern end which protects the bay from the strong winter winds.

This shot was taken from the southern end looking northeast at dawn, the sky was one of the most intense i have ever seen with a mixture of different cloud types being lit up by the sun at different levels.
This was one of my favorite warm mellow mornings with no wind and a very calm sea with just a hint of a small swell washing over the rocks.
I was actually standing on a fresh cliff fall when i took this shot, thats why the rocks have no seaweed growing on them!

I used an ND8 grad filter and a polarizer
