Time to reflect.

This was a 7 minute exposure of favourite spot along Eastbourne seafront.

Canon EOS 7D
Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM
10mm/ƒ/16/421s/ISO 100

Photography gives me a chance to reflect on life, get away from all the stress and stuff that goes on.
I can set up a long exposure like this, explore spots along a beach, stroll over the downs, walk through the woods, I always like to take my photography slow, so I can clear my mind and enjoy the what is happening in front of the camera.

This particular photo was titled "Time to reflect" as this was very much a moment of reflection, I cant remember what it was I had on my mind at the time (December 1st 2013) but I always remember it was a moment I sat to clear my mind over that 7 minute exposure, watching the waves crash around the rocks and the clouds roll by, its when I started to realise this was a part of photography that meant a lot to me. A chance to escape, create and clam my mind over the chaos of life. 

Without reflection, we go blindly on our way, creating more unintended consequences, and failing to achieve anything useful.
