photoblog image From My 1970's Darkroom (1 of a few)

From My 1970's Darkroom (1 of a few)

EVER RESTLESS

I really have no idea at all where I took this coastal image, we have been to so many places with rocky shorelines like this that it doesn’t really matter. I do feel though that with modern camera equipment I would probably make a much better job of this image today.

But, I like how you've caught the wave, and also have the little foamy pool in the foreground!

Neat little waterfall on the rock, Brian.
A great timing with the water splash here Brian!

Things have moved on so much, Brian, but this still gives pleasure

The difference between our old equipment and modern digital stuff is huge isn't it

To be honest, I find this 'old' photograph quite better than any colourful image today!
great timing on the splash

The only 'better' would be a bit sharper - you probably lost some of that in the scan process. If you were to wait for modern equipment, the splashing wave would have been long gone smile I have often wondered whether I would have done better with new equipment, when looking at old shots. There is one thing about digital and that is that you can take lots of pictures without worrying about film. Also the fact that you immediately see the result and in the case of landscapes, it is easy to re-take. So I end up with: "I probably would have done better"
You could try to prove yourself right by heading to the shore to look for splashy waves.
Probably lost something in the scan Brian bur it is still a good picture

It could have been taken at Land's End or along the Atlantic coast of Cornwall. I remember such grand rocks there.

I don't recognise the lcoation, either smile What was probably cutting edge technology at the time some becomes old hat when something new and betetr comes along. Even in the age of digital photography, there have been sweeping improvements. I'd like to be on such a coast right now.
A powerful shot, nevertheless, Brian.
