White Rocks Beach in County Antrim, Northern Ireland, is full of potential for landscape photography. One particular challenge, however, is finding a simple foreground amongst the varied rock structures and types scattered along the beach. My strategy on this cloudy evening was to find something interesting amongst the rocks which would be able to become a focal point of a landscape photograph.
The little rock pool ringed with seaweed was a suitable candidate and I spent a considerable amount of time trying to simply the scene within which it lay. By positioning a wide angle lens close the ground I was able to capture the rock pool and the line of the rocks and cliffs leading into the distance.
