Aldwick Beach

By chance I had had today off, listening to the rain lashing down during the morning I was rather pleased. Late afternoon around 3:30ish it brightened up, so I took a chance and headed down to the nearest south facing beach – Aldwick.  This was the scene that greeted me, not bad at all, big clouds and with quite a stiff wind blowing. I used a relatively slow shutter speed to tame the choppy sea.
A1Once the sun had disappeared behind the cloudbank as seen here in the distance, the colour went from the sky for several minutes.

A2Looking around to the East the sky was beginning to light up. Some nice pinks and orange with some silvery looking clouds breaking the transition from blue to pink.

A3Looking straight out to sea the clouds and the colour begins to build.

A4An impressive cloud formation was now building – I took shots at various speeds, this one of several seconds and the one below at 0.25s

A5I was trying to get the spray from a wave breaking to mimic the clouds. Kind of there, but not quite.

A6A little later on, but a portrait shot. All of these images were taken using the Canon TS-E 24mm f3.5 with about 6mm of rise.

A7And back to a wider view.

I’ll see what the rest of the week brings, the forecast is very changeable, it will also depend whether I’m off work or not and therfore around to capture it.
