Pebbles on the Beach @ Saltwick Bay, Yorkshire.

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

This popular cove at Saltwick Bay makes a perfect early morning destination for shooting seascapes. As you can see, the beach is deserted.

My biggest problem was keeping my mischievous dog out of the scene.

High atop the cliffs behind my viewpoint is a holiday resort and caravan park.

The beach is accessed via a steep footpath and steps hewn out of the cliff face, the climb back to the top is energy sapping!

This photo is the result of 16 separate raw images stitched in PS3 and enhanced in Lightroom3. HDR IS NOT APPLIED.

If you have the time, enlarge the image to fill your screen, the detail is very fine, even down to each grain of sand!

As for seascapes, this is one of my best shots!

This image, for me, will live forever as it is stashed away in my mind and I think of it frequently. It is so very wonderful and perfection plus!
