Location County Country
Hartland Quay Devon England

DescriptionA remote and spectacular piece of coastline with some spectacular geology.
What to ShootShoot the dizzying array of jagged rock outcrops as the water swirls around them.
What to TakeTake some ND and graduated filters to control contrast and to allow long exposures which look particularly good here.
ParkingSadly there is an entry charge now for the toll-road down to the hotel and beach, but it does include parking.
Best TimesSunset is just fabulous here. Avoid high-tide as the beach becomes inaccessible. A receding tide is the safer way to work here, as there is a risk of getting cut off if you are on the beach as the tide comes in.
