Thread: Tenby harbour at sunset

    Tenby harbour at sunset

    It's difficult to get this shot. You only get about 10 mins at sunset, but you also need the tide right, and you need just enough water fom high tide to give the reflection pools.

    C+C welcome.

    It looks too good to be Tenby. Very surreal image. It might fit nice over my fireplace, I can almost smell the salt.

    And when the tide does co-incide with sunset Murphy says it'll be windy - or raining - or cloudy

    That is a great shot.
    I've got to ask, how long were you contemplating that image?

    About 4 years. I saw one done by another local photographer, and thought I could do better, but the right conditions are tricky to coordinate, especially as it's an hour's trip from my home.

    That's probably the mud you can smell - I was gradually sinking into it. If you would like it over your fireplace I can do it for 27 at A3 size.

    LOL - I've had a few of those. In my case "retreat to fight another day" was the wiser strategy (almost got stuck once!).

    Lost a brand new pair of Tims to the mud building a Jetty off laguardia airport some years ago...
    I give you credit for that feat Rob.

    I cannot fault this shot Rob. Superb lighting, reflections and a balanced composition to boot. Beautiful part of the country too. We have had some cracking holidays with the kids on the Pembroke coast.

    Lovely! I haven't been to Tenby for more years than I care to admit to, and this photograph reminds me what an attractive place it is.

    Well done on your determination & efforts to get the shot!

    Amazing how many people have been to Tenby. It is a great little gem of a place. Here's another I did at the same time. This one is more abstract.

    You don't know half of it. Apart from being up to my knees in gooey mud I had my wife on the quayside yelling at me to get a move on. Some people just don't understand us artists.

    I would think an irritated spouse was much more of a deterrent than the mud ... I know mine would be

    Love the second image, too.
