Aaaaaand back to the bad weather….. This place was a must visit on the trip but with doing it by public transport it only left me just over an hour to get off the bus and walk down a considerable length to get to this spot before setting off back for the bus once again, hardly ideal but it had been over 8 years since I was last here and I wanted an image to do the place justice, a bit of a tall order in under an hour on a day that had been constantly raining….. Once I got here I set up in the rain and covered the gear over after cleaning the lens off with spray and rain and just waited for the rain to stop, amazingly I got my break and the weather actually worked to my advantage here with a monstrously moody sky and waves washing in hard onto the causeway, no sooner had I got my shot it started to rain again, I waited around a while and got one more image with an American guy stood on the rocks which I like also but this was the one I’d come for, I could (and will) spend hours here shooting, planning a return trip in the car over Winter hopefully. The poor weather for once having done me a big favour, out of seemingly no chance at all coming away with an image made me a happy camper for the day, the soaking I got walking to the pub later on was a lot more bearable with this in the bag.
