Looe Island from Port Nadler

Looking east from the beach at Port Nadler at low tide, with Looe Island on the horizon
After the recent cold and snowy weather we had a promising, sunny start to the day on the 7th. Port Nadler is a bay about a mile west of Looe, accessible only by the coastal footpath or by boat.

In this shot I wanted a good line to carry the eye from the rocks out towards the island. The sea was almost flat calm but I wanted to liven up the foreground with the movement of the waves.

It took a little waiting for the right wave, and a few attempts to time the shot for the best effect I could manage.
