Raging Seas


Photo Information
Stormy seas at the old copper port of Portreath, Cornwall, at dawn high tide. The Monkey House (formerly used as a shelter by the harbour pilots who would wave flags or lanterns to guide ships into harbour, or warn away if conditions were too dangerous) was taking a real hammering in the swell!

Taken with a Pentax K1 and 28-105 lens. This is a merge of two photos. The background and sea over the Monkey House was shot at 1/20th sec at f6.3 and the foreground swilling water at 0.6sec at f16

Your double exposure merge has worked a treat, really gives the sense of the movement and the energy of the sea. Lovely

+ 1; a great example of a really effective multiple exposure. Definitely POTW fodder.

Powerful image that has been well thought out.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass
