Perch Rock - October 2015

Yesterday I was feeling a little bit of cabin fever and desperately wanted to get out and take some photos. I headed out to New Brighton as I was limited on time and it always seems to throw up a couple of nice surprises.

It was WINDY to say the least... See the video below, this will give you some idea. I love how the sand gets picked up though and creates the amazing effect. This was something I wanted to try and capture in a photo.

Here are the results from this setup. Lucky I had a big heavy tripod and some good cold weather gear on.

 This photo was taken with a Nikon D800, 24-70 2.8 - 0.8 Seconds, f18, ISO50

Once my camera and I had taken enough of the relentless wind I headed a bit closer to the lighthouse and tried to take an image of the lighthouse with the weather closing in and the sun dropping. Not sure if I prefer the colour version or the black and white one. What do you think?
