I had Trevose to myself tonight - which made me a little nervous when I climbed right down close to the cliff edge. The sea might not have been rough, but the cliff could've crumbled away any minute. On top of that, it would only take a small slip for my gear to end up in the water below... Fortunately, none of that actually happened.
The sunset wasn't quite what I hoped for, but the even light made for a straight forward shoot and a nice result. The conditions were perfect for trying out my Lee filters in the real world for the first time. I used a graduated ND filter to balance out the sky and a 6 stop ND filter so I could reduce harsh textures with a long exposure. The tide and waves were perfect for creating some motion blur and adding some interest. My Lee filters also allowed me to use my 11-16 ultra-wide lens in this sort of environment for the first time. I may have missed focus ever so slightly, but that was my own fault - not the lens'. In the end, the only thing I wish was different is if the lighthouse's light was on.
