    Went to Porthcawl this morning to watch the high tide combined with Storm Francis.

    I could hardly stand up. After 20 minutes I was exhausted.  Worth it though.

    The lighthouse is 30 foot tall. Not even the biggest wave to break but it’s over so fast.

    Thanks Keith, took literally hundreds of photos, 4K  burst mode is very handy on the Panasonic cameras.

    Yours is very nice . :good:

    Bedruthan Steps (between Padstow and Newquay) in March. Almost got blown off my feet.

    Sometimes mobile cameras are too clever by half. The attached reduced-res image of Telscombe Cliffs near Newhaven was taken today on my old WileyFox Swift. As you can guess the mark-one eyeball image was completely burnt out by the sun and the sea-cliff-sky-clouds contrast was stunning. Unfortunately the camera was too clever in its settings and adjusted it all down to a ‘nice snap’!

    I went up The Bwlch this morning, not been up there for decades.

     

    The roads are amazing, almost as good as the view, great fun in my little car.

    It rained a LOT today here – thunder and lightning for about three hours earlier – impressive, but put a real downer on the day. :negative:

    Thanks for the adjustment Dave.  Maybe I need a better phone with HDR, however shooting into the sun while using an LCD screen is a huge guessing game.

    I tend to run my photos through either MS Photos and  / or google photos, it can sort out a lot of exposure issues.

    In this case it’s also had one of the blue filters applied as well.

    Paint.Net is also a good program for quick and dirty adjustments. Its auto-adjust is good, but for this photo I found the levels and saturation adjustments did the best job of bringing the image closer to the high-key image of my memory.

    [edit] You can add plugins to Paint.net.
