Landscape photography at Littlehampton on the beach and pier. I’d visited Littlehampton a couple of years ago in strong daylight to experiment with long exposures and black and white photography. I wasn’t very happy with the results, and they haven’t aged well over time, so I thought I’d have another go at some landscape photographs in the early morning, capturing this sunrise over the wooden groynes lined up neatly along the beach.
Using long exposures again, I was able to calm the waves into a smooth surface of water/mist to isolate the groynes compositionally.
Littlehampton Pier is relatively small, a short wooden walkway with a few benches for relaxing by the seaside. I love the wooden planks leading the eye up towards the end of the pier and the negative space in the sky area created by using the rule of thirds.
