Back to Wales again with this photo from Bracelet Bay. It's already been six weeks since I returned and I still have only shown you 4 photos from there... ok now it's 5 ;-)

This was the third morning in a row I got up very early and went to this place, waiting for the right light. A good way to start your "vacation" , sleep deprivation from the beginning.. So it was good to finally have some magic light to shoot, so the next day I could sleep in without having a bad concience.. after all I didn't think it could possibly get any better than this.

I used a lee 0.6 hard and soft grad here for the sky and then waited for the right flow of water and some incoming wave. I didn't manage to get both in one photo so this is a blend of two photos.. I just think that building wave is very important to create some tension and another diagonal in the image.

Even if this was blended in post, I already knew during shoot how I wanted it to look and what I would do with those two shots. I think this is very important, knowing what is possible in postproc and what you need from the shoot to achieve your vision.

hope you like it!

cheers
