Bude Ocean Pool Flow

Bude Ocean Pool Flow

Bude Sea Pool – a huge outdoor swimming pool under the cliffs which is filled at high tide. It was built in the 1930s to provide a safe haven for swimmers. The pool is completely free to all, and open 24 hours a day, an estimated 60,000 people use the pool every year though perhaps not in January. Public funding was stopped in 2010, and the pool is now maintained by a charity – Friends of Bude Sea Pool – which raises funds to pay for its £30,000 annual costs. This was our second visit to the pool during the trip with the first one being a little fraught with a strong gale and needing to hang on to tripods. On this visit the wind was light. It was soon after sunrise and not long past High Tide with the water pouring out from its high point

The picture was taken with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 28-200 zoom at 75mm. Taken with a tripod using a BW 10 stop filter and a shutter speed of 45 seconds. The picture was first processed in RAW. More overall detail was brought in using Topaz Clarity. More adjustments with Topaz Adjust to brighten with a high key preset. A slight saturation increase with a saturation adjustment layer.
