With the weather forecast promising rain all day at home, I looked at the map to see where I might stay dry and the northern coast of Somerset looked promising. So, Porlock Weir it was. Unfortunately it was a low spring tide so all of the interesting groynes and coastal structures were fully exposed. Therefore I decided to make the most of the shoreline and found this spot where the rocks swept around and out to sea. I had time to make a few exposures before the family got a bit bored with me and we set off to explore elsewhere.
I've often seen this row of seats in Sidmouth on my way to the beach and wondered if they'd make a good subject for a long exposure. So one day I stopped and did just that.
