Bossignton

Bossignton

Get the tide right at Bossington and it is a fantastic place to take landscape photographs.   The old timber groynes keeping the large pebble beach in place make for facinating coastal subjects.

This shot was taken looking to the west towards Porlock, the pink glow lasted for about 30 seconds before the sun finally dropped below the headland.  What then resulted was a frantic attempt to find the narrow path back to the car using the pathetic torch on the back of a rapidly dying iphone...

Close up of the timber groynes that retain the large pebble beach at Bossington.  The Longshore drift is very much in evidence with the difference in levels from one side of a groyne to the other occasionally being over 6ft.

A warm, fly invested trip to the Steart Marshes sadly coincided with the least spectacular grey sky imaginable.  

Thankfully we found these wooden posts that invited a minimalistic approach to a shot.

I waited for ages for this surfer to get a wave (he was pretty much the only one out) having seen him doing well on my walk to the water.  Sadly he stopped being good as soon as I started shooting.  Maybe he noticed the the white Canon lens?

The light was fading and the waves were slowly dropping off so most of the surfers started heading in.  This was a snapshot taken after looking back as I walked to the car.

A bit of a rush I have to admit after a crash on a mountain bike ride earlier in the evening meant hobbling up through the woods with a swollen knee, not the most pleasant way to reach a spot you have had your eye on for a while! 

That combined with the fact that I was supposed to be picking up the wife on the other side of town at the moment this was taken...
