What perfect contrast and color. My eye is attracted to even the movement of the water through the wood. Fabulous image.

while the details of the water break in the foreground are complex, the overall composition is clean and simple, with the waves as a transition from the one to the other; a masterpiece.

Behind The Lens

Location
This is one of my favourite places to visit I just love this set of groynes situated at the north end of Hornsea beach and its so easy to get to just a two minute walk from the carpark
Time
It ws the 29th December and I had planned to shoot sunrise but the weather forecast got it wrong and it was a dull morning but I decided to make the best of it by playing with long exposures emphasising the wave motion this was captured at 8:20am I quit liked the water movement around these groynes
Lighting
The sky was very dull but the wet groynes seemed to pick up some reflected light from the sea
Equipment
I had my canon 5dmk3 with EF 17-40mm f4L USM mounted on a tripod and I used a cable release so I could get the timing of the shots right
Inspiration
These groynes shot from this angle looks a little like the Titanic rising from the waves and I quite liked the patterns formed by the retreating wave
Editing
There is very little processing the shadows were lifted slight contrast adjustments and a sharpen that was it
In my camera bag
Canon EOS 5D Mark III, Canon EOS 7D, EF17-40mm f/4L USM, EF 24-105mm f4 L IS USM Lens, 0.3, 0.6 x2, 0.9 x2 hard graduated Lee filters, 0.6 ND filter, Big Stopper, Little Stopper, Circular polariser, landscape circular polariser, manual white balance card, misc cleaning products
Feedback
Careful Planning and preparation such as looking at images from the area on the internet always make things easier on location and although I go for specific shots I always look around for different aspects or patterns that I can use in my images, I have been to Hornsea beach many times but the light is never the same twice I always like to get to a location early so I can take in the atmosphere and look around for points of interest or unusual compositions and check how the waves are moving then if the sunrise does not happen I can take a different aproach
