The Tuesday Inspiration: Sun, sea and acres of TI!

by Helen Hooker August. 28, 2012 5529 views

I was determined to get out and shoot for today??s theme, especially as the weather was being kind for once, so I headed down to the beach at East Wittering. The beach was fairly busy but I had a plan to get around this by fitting my ten stop neutral density filter and my polarising filter to the front of my lens. That way, I was able to shoot minute long exposures and, providing they kept moving, the sunseekers didn??t show up in my pictures! There were lots of fluffy clouds in the sky being blown along at a rate of knots by the wind and these, combined with my ND filter, have created some wonderful patterns in the sky. As for the TI ?? there was acres of that on show as it was low tide!

Thanks to Jenny [photoblog.com] for setting today??s theme. Last Tuesday??s theme was ??guide??. The other interpretations of this week??s theme can be found here [photoblog.com].

The ??Tuesday Inspiration? began in 2009 when Stéfan [photoblog.com] and I started setting each other a photographic challenge on a? Tuesday. Very soon afterwards, we decided to open this up to other PB members, followed by the idea that we should not reveal what the subject is, so that other members could compare how different members view a single theme. The Tuesday Inspiration is not a contest or a challenge, but a group of people all agreeing to post their interpretation of a single theme on Tuesdays. Each week, one of the contributors sets the theme. There are now over 40 members contributing to the TI. We have only two ??rules?: don??t include the subject in the TI title or tags and please comply with standard PB guidelines on courtesy, etc. If you would like to take part, please send me a message via this blog.
