Back to Tenby Point today to play with the new 50-200mm lens, Only I didn’t take this shot with it,lol

Having a bit of a creative moment where I don’t want clutter, I am seeking, calm soilitary shots.
Minimilism I think we may call it………..who knows!!!

It always suprises me how popular these shots from Tenby Point become. I know I love them and I am glad others do too. I do hope that more photographers head down that way and try it out.

But honestly, when you get out of the car and head onto the beach and the tide is out…..your first reaction will inevitably be …..“What the hell am I going to shoot here”

I was sitting there yesterday waiting for the tide to come in and thought that if I didn’t know any better, I would get back into the car and look for something more appealing. Besides the bloody mozzies that have made an extra early appearance this year and were eating me alive at 3 in the afternoon.

All the magic of this place happens on a rising tide and around the dawn and dusk hours.
It really gets the most amazing colours, particularly on a calm day.

First impressions with the tide out are, mud, brown water, shapeless dark rocks, gnarly roots covered in mud of the mangrove trees and thousands of rising tubular type roots. It absolutely looks like a teenagers bedroom floor.
Crap everywhere and you may wonder how in the world one can get these types of shots.

Patience………..check your local tide charts and sunset times.
I really wouldn’t make the effort on a low tide at sunset, but that’s just me.

The tide does come in very quickly, so no need to worry if it is way out. It’s a comin’ lol.
I have had the tide start to rise so quickly that in one 60 second exposure I have gone from dry sand to up to my ankles in water.

So if anyone is looking to head down there, that would be my advice.

Cheers and thanks to you all for stopping by, leaving comments and just enjoying.

  • Thanks John……….the water is a very murky browny hue, so not too much of an effort to change it’s qualities!!
