Shoot, Print, Surprise!

Back at Dawlish Warren

In my latest video, I headed to Dawlish Warren to shoot some dawn seascapes.  For those of you who have been following my blog for a while now, you may well be wondering if that is the only location I've ever photographed!  I admit it though, I do like going there to capture images.

There are two good reasons for this.  Firstly, it's close to home for me.  This means that during the winter months when my time is particularly short, it's nice and easy for me to get to.  It also offers a variety of different compositions to suit different conditions.  With 15 or so groynes of different styles, and long beach it works well with both high and low tides.  So, you can virtually go there in any conditions and get an interesting image.

I've mapped out the 15 groynes in a custom google map.  It's still a work in progress, but the custom map also has recent images of each groyne so you can see what they look like before you get there.  You can view the map here, and you can see how to make your own map here.

Shoot, Print, Surprise!

So back to the topic of the video.  Well, the title should give you a good idea of what the video is about.  In the video, I head out to Dawlish Warren to capture some dawn seascape images and then I head home to print some of them off.  But what is the surprise?  Well, you'll just have to watch the video to find out!

Well, I do hope you enjoyed that video, and of course the surprise element.  Did you enjoy the surprise?  What are your thoughts on the surprise topic?  Let me know in the comments below.
