A few shots from a walk along Pennard Cliffs to Three Cliffs Bay on Saturday evening. Whilst heading towards the bay, I heard my second Chiffchaff of the year calling from a hedgerow (the first was at Rumney Great Wharf near Cardiff on Thursday). The sky was colouring up quite nicely; but, by the time I got in place for a picture, the colours were fading, and I had to make do with this shot:
Unlike on my previous visit, it was high tide, enabling a couple of long-exposures of the tide as it rushed in to the bay:
It was a clear and starry night, so I decided to stay around for a star-trail shot. It was a slightly unnerving experience sitting on the cliff-edge in almost total darkness for one hour waiting for the exposure to complete. As it turned out, the final image was a bit dark, so I've had to increase the exposure in post-processing, which has increased the noise somewhat:
I'll definitely be heading back there for more star-trails, as it's a fairly remote location, and so not so bedevilled by light pollution as the city.
