1. Oh, this is a stunner. Any post-processing? Or raw genius?

    1. Heyjude says:

      Raw genius? If I had that I wouldn’t still be using the auto settings 😉 But yes, this is as it was. Except for a little tweaking of the highlights and the added frame. Wait until you see the same beach with the sun behind me. Totally different.

        It works, I logged out and logged in again and now I can like and comment. 🙂

  2. Beautiful photo, Jude. I love the way water looks in the late afternoon.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Very different when I face the opposite direction.

  3. Sue says:

    You are certainly making the most of Cornwall!

    1. Heyjude says:

      The beach is a good place for experimenting!

    I never seem to have much success with my efforts at contre-jour.
    This one is excellent.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thank you Pete. A beach is a good place for this type of photography, lots of textures and form to play with.

    The sky doesn’t always have to be blue, I like these subtle shades as well.

    1. Heyjude says:

      It was a blue sky, but the cloud increased towards the end of the day. Have to make the most of them!

  6. Dina says:

    Lovely shot, Jude!
    You make so nice photos, don’t you shoot in RAW and use the M mode? 😉
    This is my third visit within a few minutes. WP wouldn’t allow me to like or comment on your post, nowI think it works. 🙂 ?

    1. Heyjude says:

      Hi Dina, sorry you had problems and glad they are sorted. I haven’t changed anything on the site so it must have been WP having a wobbly! I have used RAW on occasions, but because I take so many photos I don’t have the time to process them, plus they take up so much storage space. No, I tend to use the auto setting, though change to manual focus when using the macro lens. Next year I have promised myself to use the other settings more 🙂

    We actually have a beach in Connecticut called Silver Sands, though I have never seen it as lovely as your photo.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Silver Sands is a lovely name for a beach. Everything down here tends to begin with Porth… and it becomes very confusing!

      1. Elizabeth says:

        Does Porth mean port?

        1. Heyjude says:

          Yes, port or harbour or bay.

        2. Elizabeth says:

          Thanks. Need to brush up on these things before our 30th anniversary trip next year.

    It’s a doozy! Now where did that expression come from? American TV, maybe… anyway, you get the idea. I like it… a lot 🙂 🙂 Dragging myself off to kick soggy leaves with the walkers this morning 😦

    1. Heyjude says:

      I had to look that word up. Apparently it is North American and Etymologists believe that it’s an altered form of the word daisy, which was used especially in the late 1800s as a slang term for someone or something considered the best. Glad you like my silver beach, a reminder for you of your golden beaches 🙂 And kicking the leaves is far better than kicking the cat…

      1. restlessjo says:

        Thank you for the literal translation. 🙂 🙂 Seems I got it right, for a change. It was actually quite nice in the woods with those last remnants of colour, and the rain held off till we’d almost finished.

        1. Heyjude says:

          Windy and sunny here today and unusually cold!

  9. pommepal says:

    Beautiful soft and silvery and the hint of pink adds depth, love it, I’d like to walk along this one with you Jude

    1. Heyjude says:

      A nice beach bar there too PP to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee afterwards 🙂

      1. pommepal says:

        Sounds so good…

    Lovely photo that really conveys a warm feel. Shooting into the sun is tricky. I struggle with it to avoid solarization.
