Withernsea 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
