For our first shot of the day, taken well be­fore sun­rise, Sarah sug­gested fo­cus­ing on a lone rock at Ba­maluz Beach in St Ives, Corn­wall, and us­ing a sym­met­ri­cal com­po­si­tion to iso­late the rock and fo­cus at­ten­tion on it. She also en­cour­aged me to po­si­tion the hori­zon on the top third, and to get down low to fill the frame with the fore­ground rocks, as the sky was quite flat. An aper­ture of f/10 gave me a shut­ter speed of 8 secs at ISO100, which pro­duced just the right amount of blur. Ev­ery time a big wave tum­bled over the rocks Jayne would shout “Hit it!” and then “Did you get it?” It was re­ally ex­hil­a­rat­ing!
