Mellon Udrigle - Incoming Tide

Mellon Udrigle - Incoming Tide - The North West Highlands
Another day of wild weather, but luckily here I was shooting downwind so the lens element and filters were protected from the spray.

I set up the tripod with a view to capturing the retreating waves as they rolled in around my feet. I used a ND filter to lengthen the exposure to 1 second which allows the camera to capture a sense of motion while also retaining texture.

I shot a number of frames and was particularly pleased with the result here, with the retreating wave creating an interesting pattern, combined with the arc of the next wave rolling in. Earlier squally showers ahead had cleared revealing Suilven and the Coigach Hills in the distance.
