  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:

          Ah. So not completely wrong then. Thanks for the link. Not sure if I want to read it though…

    Love the sepia, old fashioned look about this photo Jude

    1. Heyjude says:

      I like that too, no editing, it just came out like this!

      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.

    πŸ™‚ Really like this one. Hope you’re pleased with it?

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thanks Ros. I have two or three shots like this that I am quite happy with.

    I really like this Jude, especially the haze off the water. πŸ™‚

    1. Heyjude says:

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

      1. Su Leslie says:

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

        1. Heyjude says:

          I hadn’t looked at it like that, but yes!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thanks Lyn. Not my favourite one though. I have a couple of others.

  7. Chillbrook says:

    You pulled it off very nicely Jude. Lovely photograph!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thank you Adrian. I keep trying for one of Roath engine from the beach, but need a really low tide!

  8. Lucid Gypsy says:

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

    1. Heyjude says:

      As I said Gilly, probably just something (false) I heard.

  9. Sue Slaght says:

    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.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thanks Sue. Yes, you should definitely try this. You’ll get some spectacular results on snow.

    This is lovely, Jude. Glad I waited patiently for it to load. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thank you Jo. I have a couple more that I rather like too. Best get feeding that hamster…

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

    1. Heyjude says:

      Glad you like it 😊

  12. Dina says:

    Awesome work, Jude. Well done! πŸ™‚
