There are days down at Crackington Haven beach – and a lot of Cornwall –  when you can barely stand up as the wind is funnelled in towards you and the waves are whipped up. On the sides of the beach you may get some shelter from being in the lee of the cliffs but on the south side you will be in their shadow.

The transition from dark rocks to sunlit tops of the waves gives extra contrast, although it does make balancing exposure tricky. Luckily modern technology has the tools to bring out what you captured, I just try not to overdo it.
