Trebarwith Strand

This unusual beach in North Cornwall features a rock promontory surrounded by water at high tide. In mid-April the sun sets in line with this promontory. I scheduled my visit for the day of the month on which high tide was an hour before sunset, so that the falling tide would leave reflective wet rocks. A neutral density filter extended by shutter speed to 30 seconds so that the water is rendered smooth and attention is concentrated on the texture of the rock.
