My Girlfriend's parents live in Deal, Kent. This weekend I had a long weekend there. We enjoyed some excellent food and a few good days out. I also enjoyed some photography and drone flying.
I had 3 locations in mind, Reculver, Botany Bay and the usual fantastic Deal Pier. The clocks have just gone forward so no real chance of getting in a sunset this trip. I had intended to get up and go for a sunrise shot in Deal but I failed miserably and apparently it was pretty spectacular. Oops!
I think being deterred by bad weather is something I suffer from too often so in future I need to try to be creative even in bad conditions. With this in mind I set out to find a few good compositions and use ND filters for really long exposures. As well as scouting for future shots.
What a wonderful location. I was a bit sad to find that I had left the memory card out of my DJI Spark. It was plugged into the side of my laptop. Whats worse is that the conditions were perfect for drone flight, no wind whatsoever and plenty of sunlight.
Botany Bay and Kingsgate bay
So Im told that this place is very very busy in the summer and the parking can get interesting. I would recomend choosing your timing wisely.
