Quick pop to the beach 19th October 2019

Saturday afternoon after a morning of torrential rain and a quick trip out to try and de-energise the kids, I had a short time slot to get out with the dog for a walk with my camera.
Headed down to Eastbourne seafront (sovereign end) to a little spot I like just at the end of the promenade (opposite Sovereign park East end car park).
It's a little jetty that shows at low tide and is surrounded by large wave breaker rocks, been here many many times, mostly for sunrise, catching the waves breaking around the rocks and doing long exposures. I have added an album to my site showing images from this spot View It HERE

Set my Fuji X-T1 up with my Fujifilm 10-24mm lens on my Manfrotto 190 XProB tripod

First shot was using my HOYA Infrared R72 filter 
A 25 second exposured - 14.5mm - iso 200 - f/11

Second photo was done using my B+W 10 stop filter and Format-Hitech 0.6 grad
45seconds - 11.5mm - iso 200 - f/16

After these I headed down onto the beach, some big waves were coming in but the tide was heading out so was hoping not to get a soaking from a rogue waves.
I managed this long exposure, again using my B+W 10 stop filter and Format-Hitech 0.6 grad
45seconds - 13.2mm - iso 200 - f/16

Changed position slightly and then got soaked by a sudden wave, soaking my feet and gear, but managed to capture this as it happened.
1/15 second - 10mm - iso200 - f/22

Final photo before heading back with soaked socks was this.
A simple shot catching the waves crashing in onto the beach using just the Format-Hitech 0.6 grad filter.
1/13 second - 10mm - iso200 - f/22
