When walking with a group and trying to do some photography and field recording at the same time, it is easy to end up rushing a bit and, as in this instance, forget to adjust the camera setting for the scene I’m wanting to capture. More often than not this results in useless images, but sometimes you get a happy accident.
When I first looked at this photo I thought “Whoops but wow! That’s just what it felt like at the time!”
The over exposure produced a bleached, white hot effect and when the sun was out this broad exposed hazy seascape felt just like this. I have included a more correct exposure of the scene in the gallery below so you can compare.
As can be seen from the “Pergyl – Danger” notice, the area used to be a firing range and people are advised not to touch anything they find as it may explode. One of the walkie talkies for the group was dropped on the beach during the walk and could not be found – I hope it doesn’t cause a scare for the person who finds it.

Beautiful. Love it – and the comparison with the others just highlights the surreal quality of the first one 🙂
Glad you like it Jane – thanks
‘bleached beach’ my favourite!
Mine too – thanks
