In fieri tumultus

We’re off to Nash Point in Wales for today’s image, and what a lovely rocky formation this was.

Though we didn’t get here at the right time for a sunset, we did arrive in time for the tide to be on it’s way in which allowed for some day time long exposures. It often amazes me how quickly a tide can come in, and when you’re taking a few long exposures that time appears to be faster still. Before you’ve managed to take a shot you end up having to move the tripod further inland before taking another.

It wasn’t too long after this image was taken that we were heading back up the cliff to the car, ready to move on to our next destination (which if I remember correctly consisted of driving a high speed to find a camp site and set up for the night before rushing around to two locations trying to find a spot for sunset, the one we settled on being inaccessible by car and resulting in us having to jog for a mile or two in order to try and get some decent light, which never quite took place).
