On a mild April afternoon we took a trip down to the Sussex coast and stopped off at West Wittering. It was one of the mildest days we had had for some time and was a joy to be walking along the beach, sand between the toes and setting up the camera! Mind you please always remember that sand and cameras don’t go well together and this is one reason I am wary of changing lenses along such locations. On this occasion I was using my Nikon 18-35mm wide lens with a polariser and 0.3 ND Grad fitted.

I have to confess that some people got in the way on the distant waters edge. I hope they would move but they seemed to be setting up camp right in my photo. I was stuck and ddn’t really want to throw pebbles at them to scare them off! I decided to take the shot, see if the people added to it or if not I would clone them out. I opted for the latter, as they were quite distracting. I also decided that it worked better as a black and white.
