Surf’s up

waves and breakwater

f/11, .5″, ISO 100, 200mm

On Friday, Jenifer and I found time to head down to the coast.  Despite the bitter cold, we had loads of fun capturing the surf at Climping Beach.  A longer post from this shoot is in the pipeline, all about shutter speeds and waves.

Time to catch up with my 365 redux.  365/37 and 39 are from 2009.  Neither awfully good, but it seems I don’t take many pictures on 6th and 8th February in any year except for the year of my original project 365.  In keeping with my ‘rules’, I have attempted a better edit at least.  365/38 is from 2014.  I enjoy flipping reflections and cropping out the ‘original’.

This is why I didn’t post yesterday: an epic full day of shooting in West Sussex.  More anon.   Yesterday’s and today’s 365 at the end.

365/4 and 5 are from January 2009.  I was a digital newbie, just learning my way around pixels and processing.  I would convert to shooting exclusively RAW later that month.  Never looked back really.

Where land meets sea

The last few weeks have been hard and blogging has been far from my mind. But I wanted to share this slideshow, which I made for a talk I gave in the summer at the Shed Gallery’s ‘Muse’ exhibition in Lyme Regis. It features a few of my own pictures, but mostly inspirational images by other photographers that I selected from the Gallery, on the theme of my talk, coastal photography. Being a very proud Mummy, I must add that my favourite thing about it is the music, an original score composed and recorded for the talk by my very talented daughter, Maggie Talibart. Not too shabby for thirteen!
