Having another go with my Clevedon Pier photograph. This time I used a thinner application of oil for the sky and less etching time. The sky has come out much better, but the shorter etch time wasn’t long enough to allow me to make a decent print. So, I’ll have another go, this time with a longer etch and a similar treatment for the sky.
Time to get some exercise – The tide was up at 9am in nearby Clevedon and at this time of year we get good flocks of waders overwintering. Today, no large flocks – the weather is very mild at the moment, but a small flock of the usual redshank roosting on the rocks above the level of the tide, and later a group of 5 goosander drifted by.
Sitting up on Wain’s hill and just watching the tide rapidly recede, The clouds parted and a shaft of sunlight illuminated the river mouth – nice!
Clevedon Pier viewed from Layde Bay at beach level. A windy day at high tide. I love the way black & white creates such drama. – Fuji XT20, 18-55mm, Polarising filter, shot in RAW processed in Silver FxPro2 – Fine Art option with a red filter applied.
