A Wee Bit Windier still..

I drove onto the harbour road when I first arrived at the fishing village of Porthleven before first light this morning.  Suddenly faced with a wall of water, I reversed rapidly and sought higher ground passing a policeman as I went with cones and tape to close the road…

Standing above the village I was able to avoid most of the sea spray that was filling the air but constant wiping of the ND Grad filter I was using was still necessary.  I also had the help of a good friend who stood with their back to the wind, shielding the camera and tripod from the spray but it was still a struggle to keep lens and camera dry. I saw a lot of photographers lower down with their cameras in plastic carrier bags, drenched through.  I think I made the right decision to stand where I did… ;-)
