I arrived at high tide, so I could shoot as it receded, uncovering the pool. Sadly, this was also the middle of the day, the last of the 3 day lull between storm fronts, and I had to contend with bright sun causing difficulties for the long exposures I wanted. I can't say I am very happy with the results either compositionally or regarding the mono conversion. This just means I will have to have another go next year.
Sadly, as the tide went out, the cloud came in. So it will take another trip to get a shot of this derelict house, that is slowly losing its battle with the sea, under better light and with a more dramatic sky.
