Photo Of The Week

Jumping The Waves – 06/08/2016

I am back to linking up with this weeks Point + Shoot with YouBabyMeMummy and My Sunday Photo with Photalife. I love sharing some of my favourite photos from the our holiday, you can find many more in our Holiday Diary’s, Day 1, Day 2 & Day 3. More days to follow over the coming week.

Minehead _DSC5110-1-2

This particular photo you will find in Day 1 of our Somerset holiday adventures, I am particularly pleased with this photo as its a great action shot of Leah jumping the “waves” on Minehead beach. Leah was being very brave doing this as shes never been one for walking barefooted on a beach, let alone put her feet in the sea so for her to do both things at the same time on our first day really was lovely for her to do and enjoy. Sadly this little jaunt soon came to an end as Leah was caught out by a rouge wave which resulted in her loosing her footing and getting rather soaked.

As for the camera I captured this photo on my 18-55mm lens, I wasn’t overly prepared this afternoon with a telephoto lens but happy enough with the results. Settings were; ISO 100, 55mm, f.10, 1/160sec. Perhaps my shutter speed could have been increased a little to eliminate the blurring of Leah’s fingers but I find this barely noticeable.

    What a lovely photo! I hope the big wave didn’t put her off and she braved going in the sea again later in the holiday.
    I would never have noticed the blurring of her fingers!
