Bracklesham Bay Beach at sunset - one of my absolute favourite pictures of Hampshire
I know I have said this many times before on my blog but I love this shot, taken at Bracklesham Bay.
This is a great coastal Hampshire landscape photography location, especially at sunset.
I deliberately framed this shot to get the timber groyne prominent in the foreground, but could only fit in a bit of the sky. The main feature in this shot though is the water, which I managed to capture like this using a 30 second exposure, F11, ISO50 on my Canon EOS 5D with Canon 17-40mm F4L lens.
I was hoping that I would get lots of colours in the water, which thankfully I did.
This shot was all about patience and surveying the scene.
I spent quite a lot of time choosing my composition, and settled on three different compositions which I had time to capture. By spending the time before the sun set I knew what I was looking to capture, which made the time limited process of landscape photography of a sunset very enjoyable.
If you keep practising your photography you end up capturing better images.
I used to spend all my time on the technical side of photography, in particular gear and accessories.
These days whilst I have a lot of gear I have a basic setup which I use for 90% of my photography. I also have image capture and processing sorted to the point where I can concentrate on making the picture.
