Cockwood Tenders

Cockwood Harbour, South Devon.

I can’t remember the number of times I have passed this location in the last six months but what I can remember is the fact there was never any water. I have wanted to shoot this location for a while and when I noticed the sunset, high tide and time of year all fell into place at the same time I knew I couldn’t miss the opportunity.

Having scouted the local area with another local photographer and good friend Martin Lovell we dropped in The Ship for a swift pint prior to the shoot. It wasn’t until we left we both realised we had just a few minutes before the sun disappeared behind the horizon and we very nearly missed it all together.

Having arrived at the location I was setup and taking images within a couple of minutes, this was shot using a Lee 0.6 Hard Grad, Lee Coral 6 Hard Grad and a Circular Polarizer. Although the sky was clear which was not ideal I opted to crop the image to minimise the blandness and relyed on the tonal range and texture of the water in the foreground for interest.
