  1. I try to avoid shooting into the sun. This specacular photo makes me wonder why.

      I’m sure I have heard that it damages the lens? But that might be an Old Wives Tale. Anyway I don’t shoot exactly into the sun, but in that direction. I do love the way the water shines. More to come.

      1. It’s not the lens that can be damaged, but the camera’s sensor and shutter curtains. Here’s more information:

      A beach in late autumn sun. Quite busy actually, though no-one in the water.

    Your ‘contre-jour’ worked well, Jude. I rarely attempt it myself.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

      Had to wait for the sun to disappear behind a cloud otherwise there was no definition of the cliffs, but I got a couple of interesting shots in this direction.

      The wind was blowing quite strongly around that end of the beach.

        πŸ™‚ Isn’t it cool that in a totally static medium, wind is visible.

    I like taking shots like this, but I’m too daft to have thought I might be damaging my camera 😦

    It’s a stunning capture Jude. Taking notes on this one and will remember this photo as we spend time in the ice and snow this winter.

  12. This is a wonderful, atmospheric, shot. I think shooting towards the sun can often make excellent pictures.
