Location County Country
Stackpole Quay Pembrokeshire Wales

DescriptionManaged by the National Trust, there are several beautiful bays, a tiny harbour used by local fishermen and some tea-rooms.
What to ShootShoot the harbour and the rock stack in the adjacent bay using the rocky beach as foreground. Barafundle Bay, just to the West, is well worth the walk for the views too.
What to TakeTake some ND and graduated filters to control contrast and to allow long exposures which look particularly good here.
ParkingThere is a large National Trust car-park.
Best TimesTry to avoid midday and high-tide.
