Bedruthan Steps by Alex37 Bedruthan Steps by Alex37
This is probably my favourite beach in Cornwall. It's only acessible at low tide down a massive flight of slightly precarious steps, so you totally avoid the sunbathers and the bucket and spade brigade, which is great. The surroundings are obviously also pretty spectacular.

I took my girlfriend to the coast and we spent the afternoon bodyboarding on glassy 4-5ft aves and then had a barbeque. Of course my primary reason for going to the coast was photography and I got my 'thrift at sunset' shot that I had been thinking of for a while!

Alex, this is pic is so sweet! Image editing near perfection with a natural, realistic result and such a great quality as I can hardly find it on dA anyway! You capture an excellent landscape, all elements fits together as you placed them in the picture and you add a nice lighting that make it even more plastic and interesting! Well done and a very good choice for the DD! Congratulation :-)!

You need to go at the right time of yea, then look for a specific viewpoint and wait until sunset. Photography is as much about what you leave out as what you leave in.
