The timing of this shoot turned out to be extremely fortunate for me as it was in the autumn of 2013 and this was the approach of the first of many storms that would batter the UK throughout the whole winter.
Sadly it would be one of these storms that demolished the beach huts on the right hand side of the image.
I used HDR photography and if you don't know it stands for High Dynamic Range. In a nutshell you take 3 shots instead of one. One shot is underexposed, another is overexposed and the last is just right. These are then combined in Photoshop which takes the best detail from all the images. It also means that you can apply some interesting effects and it is this that brings out the texture and detail.
On top of that I lucked out a little with the sea spray on the lens
