Well, it sounds better than simply saying that I slipped on some rocks while out trying to take some photos yesterday. Bit bruised and wet but nothing serious - the camera was fine. I was on Kilve Beach in Somerset, a remarkable place and experimenting with some welding glass and the tripod. You then convert to black and white and hope that you have something useful to show for it. (The welding glass is too dark to see through and so there is a lot of guesswork involved).
The effect is to slow everything right down and so the misty effect is in fact where the tide washes in and gives it this dreamy quality. It's not quite there but it's the best of my first attempts.
