Photographer's Note

This shot was taken on Murlough Beach near Newcastle County Down, with the Mourne mountains in the distance. Heavy rainfall was intermittent which allowed the sun to shine through for some minutes at a time. The outgoing tide had produced the ripple effect in the sand which really stood out in the low sunlight. A heavy shower of rain can just be seen at the left of picture on the slope of the mountain. The little seashell at bottom left provides interest in the lower portion of the photograph.

This photograph was taken in June 2012 and is typical of the type of summer weather we have had this year.

The relatively slow shutter speed evened out the small amount of movement there was in the water.

Camera, Nikon D90 this time, using the 18-105 kit lens at a focal length of 18mm. F20 with an exposure time of 1/10 sec. ND SE 0.6 GRAD. Photoshop CS5.

Thanks for looking.

Thank you everyone for the kind and useful comments, it's much appreciated.
