Taking photos on the coast at Filey

Taking photos is something I've really gotten into this last year. Now Doug and I are quite good at setting shots up and making most things look right in a few attempts sometimes even first time in the case of this wire wool orb I did yesterday.
We have been more adventurous with our locations for taking photos, and gained an extra guy who joins us two weekends ago I was traipsing around at the bottom of a waterfall collecting bottles filled with glow sticks this weekend we went to the coast. It was nice a warm and the only thing we had to worry about two things:
seals (they were actually really relaxed about us being so close)
waves (That's Frantz and I)
So by the time we got out on the rocks at low tide it was already starting to get dark so again I did not have to use my ND filter. I took some long exposures of the water going over the rocks.


Then we did some some light painting.

this was a strange building right buy the water

One other thing to note is the walkie talkies were so helpful as with the waterfall the sea makes a lot of noise. Today we were out for about 3 hours but the water was not cold and we didn't have to walk to far to get to our spot unlike with the waterfall last time, so although I was really tired at about 1am when we finished it was no where near a tiring. It did take a long time to get home and after a end of holiday Mc Donald's and putting my photos on dropbox it was about 4am when I finally got to sleep. I now have to break my sleep cycle and go to work tomorrow, it will be nice to see everyone.
