Sea of Clouds at Compton Beach by Jason Swain. Welcome to Monday, and here’s a shot from Cloud-spotters paradise on the Isle of Wight. Little fluffy clouds everywhere you look, reflected in the tide pools at low tide on the beach at Compton Bay.
This is a single shot at 12mm on the Sigma 12-24mm wide angle lens, it’s a little blown out at the top left corner (thats where the sun was) but i think it manages to display an impressive dynamic range for one single exposure (the Canon 6d camera is impressing me more and more each time i shoot with it)
I also shot a few vertoramas (vertical panoramas) of the same scene which dealt with the overexposure problem (as you expose one shot for the sky and the other for the foreground), but looking back now I think I prefer this traditional landscape format and the simpler composition.
And if you look very carefully, you can see a little human figure highlighted against the white cliffs, he was out on the exposed reef looking for fossils and evidence of dinosaurs.
Exif Data = f/4.5 at 1/1600 ISO 100
