Crawton Waterfall

Crawton Waterfall
I'd visited this area once previously - to explore Fowlsheugh bird reserve just up the coast from here - but hadn't thought to check out this waterfall while I was there. So, being in the area again, I rectified the omission.

Not that the waterfall itself is particularly impressive - quite limited flow - but the cliffs are an impressive sandstone conglomerate rock with quite large embedded clasts.

There was enough breeze to make a long exposure quite difficult, so I took 40 frames at 1/1.3s each using a circular polariser filter in two different orientations and averaged them all together. I particularly like the 5x4 crop - previewed as a square in camera - as it emphasizes the negative space with the seawater fading into the sky in the top-right corner.
