I had originally planned to take a picture from under the pier, but the tide was against me as there was 4 feet of water where I wanted to stand, so I went along the beach a little to find a different vantage point, I used a 10 stop filter to try to get some movement in the clouds and flatten the water, but it was just too bright.
The pier in the picture was originally 3,787 feet long, but most of it got destroyed in a storm in 1978.
I have featured the pier head in another challenge (week 2)
I had great plans for this week, but other events kept getting in my way, so this is an unplanned image. I do like the textures in the wood, this side table lives in the garden through all weathers, and shows it's age, but that is it's attraction
I took this using my iPhone but edited in Color efex pro 4
As I really struggle with getting up, I decided to take a picture of others lying down instead of me taking one from lying down. These two ladies are called the Alluvia ladies and were presented to our City by Jason deCaires Taylor who is a renowned sculptor who specialises in underwater exhibits (see link) and is originally from our area.
I had to use a polarizing filter to remove the glare from the waters surface, I have owned one for a long time, but hardly get to use it.
