The headlands of East and West Pentire create the cauldron that is Crantock Bay. As big Atlantic swells press in, so strong rip-currents form along the meandering channel of the River Gannel. The escaping, receding water carves out deep pools and textured gullies in the sand and these always catch my eye as the summer sun lowers into the sea. In this image, I chose a strong graduated filter to 'hold' the sky and selected a closed f/stop so as to create a strong sunburst. By positioning the camera down low, I gained a second reflected burst that accentuates the pristine, serene outlook.
Besides the popular formats listed in the drop down menu below, this image would ideally suit reproduction as a large Hi Gloss 6mm Acrylic artwork. The textures and hues would be enhanced by the high silver content in the print and the clarity and depth in the acrylic glass would add impact.
