Coastlines and beach scenes are a popular haunt for landscape photographers. These locations offer almost everything you could want in a scenic shot - layers in the foreground, water for reflections and movement and an open view of the horizon, for sensational sunrises and sunsets.

These places are not without their challenges however. It's very easy to get the exposure wrong, since the reflectivity of the water can throw your cameras auto exposure system off the scent while, simultaneously, there are some big gradients in colour.
