Thanks to everybody for there kind comments. The polariser I use is an exceptionally large one with a camera thread of 95mm this is because it needs to fit my widest diameter lens namely a 55-100 zoom for the Pentax 67. It is a Heliopan circular polariser with a built in 81 series warm up filter which just removes the very slight cool cast that the polariser tends to give a scene. This size of filter is costly at nearly 175.00 but is much cheaper in the smaller sizes. #3050251

Description

Location: Cove Bay, Hopeman, Moray, Scotland.

A wonderful stony beach cascades steeply down into the glass clear waters that sloosh around in Cove Bay near Hopeman. The pale pebbles pick up the late afternoon sunlight and are painted gold. I got down as low as I could to emphasise their texture, they looked simply magnificent against an azure sky dashed with flecks of cumulus cloud. The whole scene just screamed colour and a polariser ensured that colour was rendered with astonishing clarity on Velvia film.
Please check out my website at Transient Light and
Timecatcher.
