Withersea Beach Groyne

A Good Friday last minute dash to the East Riding of Yorkshire, Withernsea on the Yorkshire Coast; well it is the Holderness Coast and is the fastest eroding coastline in Europe. Withernsea has no less than 18 sea defence groynes and it is a typical Victorian seaside resort. This resort is 17.5miles from Hull which is one the main ports on the east coast, sitting on the Humber Estuary.

From the beach is a highly visible offshore wind farm known as the Westermost Rough. Looking due south east is the Humber Gateway wind farm.

It is my first proper outing for publishing in over a year. Me and my partner decided to take advantage of the weather, as the rest of the Bank Holiday is going to be a bit wet, typical for us British.

This is a 34 second exposure using a big lee stopper (10 stop filter) and 0.3ND hard edge graduated filter, with some post editing in Lightroom 4. Photographed around 3.30pm. I had hoped for more fair weather cloud however you can’t have everything.

Hello it is great to be back, and thank you for calling by my blog today

    1. The calm before storm Katie..Thanks I feel really well out of it. There have been annoying changes in WordPress in my absence. That will teach me😯

      1. Yes !!! they can’t keep their hands away from it – avoided most of it by bookmarking old (better) pages for Dashboard & posting: it is all still there underneath the crap (dumbed down version) but for how long ….. who knows.
        It is as always ‘progress’ & for that read: how to make things more difficult, less intuitive & just bloody terrible.

        See what you have missed: all the rants from those who use a PC and not one of those phones that do everything but make a phone call.

        Sorry you got me going for a moment πŸ˜‰

        David.
