Beach combing

All of the images this week come from a photo shoot over a couple of days on the coast in Northumbria. It was a wild and windy almost the whole time, with clouds scudding across the sky very quickly and the sun doing its best to emerge when it could. Amongst the sun and the clouds, we also had squally storms of rain which could sometimes be seen coming landward from the NorthSea.

Venturing out on the beaches meant protecting the camera as best as I could with my back to the ever-present wind, turning quickly to take the photograph and then covering the camera up again. I tried not to use the zoom action of the lens whilst facing into the sand-laden wind so I didn’t draw grains into the barrel.

Every night back in the accommodation meant a thorough cleaning with a rocket blower and lens cloth. I had clear filters on the front of my lenses, and these were wiped with the cloth to get salt spray and sand off.
