Good shot. But "secret"? Just you and 30 of your closest friends out! :-)

I can't understand how anywhere in cornwall can be secret, I live down here and it seems that evry single crack and crevace of the coastline is full of emits. None-the-less this is a great photo and I only wish I knew how to get there. Great shot! 5*

secret or not, I don't feel like people would be flocking to this spot, looks like Hell's Mouth haha...class shot though, the detail makes it look more like a painting than a real picture too

Another classic from that February swell Clive - frigging awesome! I had waves in that month, many of them, that will stay with me till the end of my days... Must have a good look through your stock of that month for some survenoirs...???

Shot with a Canon 1D MKiv and 600mm F4 lens. Contrast increased slightly to reduce the haze, no desaturation, this is in colour, and a little sharpening to bring out the detail, nothing major in photoshop to report DrWavey.

Nice! I used to live just down the road from here but never even saw this spot look like this! What lens are you using here Clive? I know it's been sharpened, contrast reduced, de-sat etc in postproc but it seems sharp through a decent depth of field and with even exposure using a pretty fast shutter speed in pretty high contract lighting? That's not normally a mix of conditions I have much luck with!

Thanks Mikepike, I've hundreds of shots from that swell in Feb, it was pretty full on. Some are almost worth the trek and the frozen body parts to get them. Could have done with a heated wetty under my clothes on a couple of the sessions.
