This is the Famous remains of the Old Pier at Swanage in Dorset. This Has become a mecca for all Long exposure photographers, with its simple composition, interesting wood structure and slight sweeping shape. It makes a great LE subject.
With so many other photographers shooting this pier images can become a bit similar, but here is my take on the well shot landmark.
Taken on a Very cloudy and over cast Day, Perfect conditions for Swannage. Using a 10 stop ND filter the exposure ran into several minutes, simplifying the scene, smoothing the sea and increasing the contrast in the scene.
Swanage is a Great Place to visit and shoot, and I would fully recommend it to anyone! With winter being the best time to visit.
