And Down To The Sea…At Night

This photo was taken on the same night as my last post, which was looking towards Hythe. This is just a short distance to the west of Hythe on the south coast in Kent. The steps take you down to the beach but the tide had been in so i didn’t make it all the way down. The view is towards France across the English Channel, so yes, that’s light pollution and not the remains of a sunset.
This is a 30 second exposure and i lit the walls with a small torch. It also added some light to the sea which i think works nicely.
The line in the sky is from an aeroplane. I thought about removing it but i actually quite like it. Besides, it shows what’s in the sky and what we capture in photos.








About PurpleT

Much of my photography is art and documentary. I try to capture a scene as i see it in my mind, whether that be black and white, colour, or somewhere in between. I try to make an interesting, and/or attractive image from what i see around me, not just what would be expected, but also subjects that would be seen boring, mundane, or ugly by many. But they all have an interest as art photography. I have also spent nearly twenty years working as a life model, then the human figure in art is very important to me, and is something i try to bring into my work at times.
