Born in Canterbury, Kent, in 1971, I have always been surrounded by beautiful countryside and varied and diverse coastline. Photography has become an outlet for expressing my love for the region.
Great shot Stuart, like the moving white water around the foreground rock with the reflections of the hills in the wet sand. The lovely blue sky is set off well and the plane trails are an added bonus.
Cheers Gary, thanks for spotting all the things I saw when on the beach (other than 4th time lucky for the water movement!)
Normally i’ve gone home by this point but been experimenting with stacking all my ND’s to see what I can get.

Beautiful array of colours and reflections, love the trails, great shot Stuart. Sometimes straight out of the camera is the way it should be, prime example here.
Thanks very much Varinia – being under various major flightpaths just have to live with the trails so may as well use them to an advantage.
Lovely slippery reflections Stuart, great idea :)
Cheers Matt, there were 4 photographers all together just out of shot to the right who were just packing up and leaving, I’m now wondering as to why and providing you have easy access to outrun the incoming tide it’s a technique I will may try again.
Looks great Stuart like the natural colours you’ve captured.
Thanks very much Steven, have the nice early morning sun to thank for that as it was still low enough to glow a little red on the cliffs.
Nice work my friend.
Cheers Richard – much appreciated
Wow this is an incredible shot Stu, love the layers and textures, the light is fabulous!!
Thanks very much indeed Simone – it’s the light I really like too
That’s the way, stack em up and you can shoot longer :) I’m fascinated that you’d go out on the beach in wellies. You must have much more fancy ones there than what’s available here….
Cheers Mel, that’s what i’ve only recently started to do, inspired by this beach which has a lot more sideways and background interest going on which means it doesn’t really matter which way you face so it opens up a lot more potential.
our wellies aren’t that fancy as they’re mass produced as demand is high, check out my left leg on the sp, you can get fancier ones but I just go far a cheap pair with good grip that keep my feet dry.
That’s the thing, I’ve never known a wellie that had good grip….but clearly I haven’t had any for a long time….it’s way too hot to wear them here…
Gorgeous, perfect exposure!
Cheers Jane, was very pleased with how this one came out.
