A funky log by the lake…
It’s summer in the UK and though we have had some nice weather recently today offered the best shooting opportunity for a while to add to the grey moody sea phase. The coming week is meant to be sunny and super hot, so with no commissioned work on I decided to visit Folkestone Warren and shoot the incoming tide for half an hour. Armed with a clamp rather than a tripod the plan was to make use of the groynes to be the camera support so water flowed around the whole scene without the possibility of sinking the tripod legs as the sand got wet below. The exposures are quite short, just about 3 seconds, but enough for movement induced by the force of the water and the viscous sand below. Both images shot using Rollei Retro 400S using the LeRouge66 medium format pinhole camera.
