Little Haven

18 Jul 2021

This is the idyllic village of Little Haven in Pembrokeshire, Wales. We were camping just up the hill from here (a 20% include hill!) and would come down to this bay for a swim - the water was lovely and clear. It all felt like what I imagine the medeteranian cost feels like, only it was in Wales.

I shot this with a 10 stop ND filter on, and I’m not sure it really helps. I bought it as the photography guide to the area I bought, the excellent Photographing South Wales, was strong on the capturing the coast with a strong ND filter. To dip my toe into the water I got a K&F circular filter which seems to be good value for money based on my experience (thanks to Dave for the tip), but I’m just not sure this style of photography is for me. Still, always good to try new things to see what takes.

As a final note, this is another photo where the insane pixel density of the A7R pays dividends - you can have fun zooming in and seeing all the people on the beach watching the sunset.
