Stone Path at Westward Ho! Beach
I wasn’t sure what to expect as I headed to the beach at Westward Ho! The webcam was looking favourable with large spring tides, yet the weather forecast cloud. I’m glad I went though, on arrival it was clear that there was some potential for a vivid display in the sky due to the clear bad of sky visible below the clouds. With the high tides, I knew that I wanted to get a good seascape photograph of the iconic walkway towards the headland of the beach. I got set up and ready to go, and it was instantly clear that the energy of the sea combined with the southerly winds was going to keep a constant supply of sea spray heading my way. Trying to keep my Lee Filter clear of it was a nightmare between shots. I managed to get a few shots that I was happy with. I really like this image, and how the dropping sunlight is reflected off the path and boulders. I also like how the dramatic cloud balances the composition.
