This image shows groynes on Alnmouth beach in Northumberland. 

The weather that day was typical for Northumberland: overcast with light rain. This wasn't ideal beach weather and the only people on the beach were a couple of dog walkers.

But for the kind of shot I was after, the weather was ideal. I wanted a low contrast image where the sea and sky merged into one with the groynes receding into the distance. I added a neutral density filter to my camera so that I could obtain a long exposure and even out the sun and sky.

I tried a few different compositions, such as shooting directly down the groynes, and moving in close to emphasise the apparent size. But this composition worked best at achieving my goal, especially with the 16:9 aspect ratio.
