Bedruthan Steps Cornwall England

DescriptionOne of the most popular destinations on the Cornish coast - managed by the National Trust.
What to ShootShoot the massive rock stacks that litter the dramatic coastline.
What to TakeTake some ND and graduated filters to control contrast and to allow long exposures which look particularly good here. Don't take excess kit - the steps are very steep!
ParkingPark at the National Trust Carpark at the top of the cliff.
Best TimesSunset is an especially good time to shoot here - a receding tide is also easiest as it leaves a clean, unmarked beach. It is also safer than an incoming tide as there is a significant risk of getting cut off here.
