Rest Bay To Kenfig Wintery Autumn Shoot

It was wet, it was cold, it was windy, but that didn’t stop an intrepid group of us heading out from Rest Bay in Porthcawl to the rear of Kenfig in Neath Port Talbot. Our goal was to get some images of the industrial landscape, along with some autumnal images. Of course, as we were next to the sea, a fair few surfer’s also managed to get into our photographs.

Typically, I went loaded with one camera, my X-T3 and just one lens, my XC50-230mm. I chose this lens as although I had never been to this area, I knew that a long lens would be perfect. As always, carrying one camera and one lens meant I was travelling light and enjoyed the day without worrying about changing lenses or heavy gear.

For a change, and due to the weather, I decided to photograph in the saturated Velvia film simulation. All images are straight from camera, except to be straightened and exposure corrected in ON1 Photo Raw 2022 where needed (on the first few shows as the weather was so bad).

I usually photograph in quite muted colours, but really fancied a change as the weather was so horrendous when we got there. I am really happy with the final result too, and the colour bring out the feel of the day as it should have been.

If you like what you’ve seen, please like and comment! Thank you.

  1. Hey Mark, Great shots, I personally like the nr 3 – 6 and 15 the most.
    There is something strange with nr 16 – looks like an enormous tsunami in the background, just above the horizon.
    Anyway, nicely done.
    Marc.
