CRYSTAL CLEAR - St. Ives, Cornwall

CRYSTAL CLEAR - St. Ives, Cornwall

For some reason I’m very fond of central compositions. I know lots of people don’t like this (because they occasionally tell me), but for me the rules are only valid if you want to follow them. Anyway, this image was made at midday, using my 8 stop neutral density filter. I wanted to smooth out the water to really simplify the composition. If I’m honest, I wish I could have gone for a swim here, it was midsummer and lovely and warm. The water was about 3 meters deep and it was crystal clear! Oh how I love St Ives! Out of interest, just after making this image I headed back to the little beach just behind me and I found a spider crab. The tide was as low as I had ever seen it here and I picked it up to show the kids... my son found it fascinating, but my daughter nearly shattered every glass on the beachfront cafe! Oh what a fun birthday it was!
