This was my last photograph I took from my final visit to Hartland Quay, it’s also probably my favourite image from this holiday in Devon.
The tide was now ebbing away and receding fast and the sun had very nearly fully set, in fact you can just see a slither of it left on the horizon. Once again it was a mad rush once you found a good vantage point to set up quickly then take the shot, because if you dawdle, the sea level which was crashing around your feet would be yards in front of you in minutes.
Hartland Quay is a fantastic location to photograph and I understand why it’s so popular. It is easily accessible, there are so many differing compositions to capture and his image fully sums up the geology of this north west corner of Devon. Jagged, layered rock combined with the smooth and shiny sea weathered boulders. What a mix.
