The Crowns, Botallack

Here is a selenium toned monochrome image of The Crowns at Botallack in Cornwall. These abandoned mines are featured in the “Poldark” UK TV series when they are always shown in glorious sunshine with a clear blue sky and not with sea fog or rain! So I thought I would have a Black & White image for a change. I was experimenting with the use of a Lee x6 ‘Little Stopper’ filter rather than more common x10 ‘Big Stopper’ to get a 13 seconds exposure. This produces a more pleasing effect for the sea rather that the milky effect through significantly longer exposures.
