WELCOME TO OCTOBER 2019’s issue of Digital SLR Photography. While the British are renowned for a great many things, including sharp wit, a love of tea and bad teeth, it’s their great passion for travel that we focus on this month.

First Date by Duncan Graham 500px.com/duncangraham “Boscombe Pier has always been special to me as it is where I met my wife Viv for our first date and I return there to mentally reset and to have fun with waves and exposure lengths. This December morning the waves were at good regular intervals and also at low tide. The spectacular colour pre-sunrise was an unexpected and very welcome bonus.” Canon EOS 5D Mark IV with 16-35mm f/4L lens. Exposure: 0.8 seconds at f/16 (ISO 100). Barrier by Duncan Graham 500px.com/duncangraham “Kimmeridge Bay in Dorset has so much drama and I particularly love it here in stormy weather where the drama of the incredible geology matches that of nature’s forces.
