A Croyde Bay Seascape

I headed to Croyde Bay last night to see if I could capture some nice seascapes during the golden and blue hours. The light looked a little hit and miss when checking the local webcams. There was a band of cloud on the horizon that could put paid to much of the light. I went anyway hopeful that there may be a small window of opportunity.

The sun light never managed to break though the cloud although there were patches of colour in the sky. I photographed a couple of different seascape compositions into the blue hour. This photo was taken about half an hour after the sun had set. I had to raise the ISO to 800 to allow me to use a shutter speed that captured the motion of the waves. I like the subtle colours and the way that darkness is tightening its grip on the bay. If you like to photograph seascapes, sandy beaches and amazing surf, Croyde is one place you should definitely visit.
