Subject - Lyme Regis, Dorset - October
It wasn't so safe out on The Cobb this day.
No one around apart from the fisherman trying to dodge the sea as it breached the harbour wall!
He was lucky - a big wave came both just before and after his run for the cabin.
I have always been a fan of 'lead-ins' in photos, such as a path, a stream, flock of sheep etc.
The curved wall was a prime example of this.
I have weather App's which were proving unreliable, in ever (quickly) changing conditions.
So I decided to visit the same spot, early every morning over several days to experience all weathers.
Now this brilliant spot, like so many others, is popular with lots of fellow photographers.
So you have to go the extra mile to get something extra special.
I've seen it before, when the weather is bad, I'm on my own, facing the elements.
It can be scary, but very rewarding.
The vicious wind and salty spray made photography difficult, however I used the weight of my kit bag to stabilise the tripod and a spare filter to keep the spray off the required ND filters, only removing it just before the exposure took place.
The walk back to base, for the reward of a cooked breakfast, when you know you've nailed a great shot, is fantastic and is why we all love to take our photography to the next level.
