Majestic and awe-inspiring
Majestic and awe-inspiring, Nigel Waters seascape photography encapsulates the magic and wonders of the British coastline and its interaction with the ocean and mother nature. Nigel Waters’s gallery of photographs captivates the raw beauty, power and mystery of our oceans with images from tranquil sun kissed horizons to the fearsome roar and power of wild horses forging their own song.
One day the coast is a place to build memories of tranquility and calmness and on another can be wild, epic, and sublime. Our coasts are ever changing as the tides come and go where mother nature steers their course. As a photographer this presents endless opportunities to produce photographs that are unique and timeless.
If you would like a seascape photo in print you can find available editions in his Seacape prints shop.

Edro III Shipwreck Seascape
The Edro III Shipwreck, Peyia, Cyprus photographed at sunset using partially submerged rocks in the foreground to anchor the image. I just loved the way the see lapped over the rocks in the foreground leaving water trails spilling over the edges as the waves retraced. I wanted to portray the motion of the sea and show the interaction between the beautiful coastline and the abandoned shipwreck at sunset in this magical location.
One of a series of photographs I took at this location over a couple of days and probably my personal favourite. You can see more images of the shipwreck and read about the history of how the Edro III ended up ran aground on the rocks of Peyia in my blog post Edro III Shipwreck.
Edro III Shipwreck Sunset
The Edro III Shipwreck, Peyia, Cyrus just before sunset with a bright yellow sky 20 minutes before the sun disappeared below the horizon. This was taken on the first evening at this location where I couldn’t get the composition I wanted due to too many people around so opted for this view using a 70-200mm lens.

Strumble Head Lighthouse
The beautiful Strumble Head Lighthouse on Ynys Meicel in Northern Pembrokeshire. After a long wait and nearly giving up the sun finally managed to break through the clouds long enough for me to capture this shot at sunset. A stunning place to just kick back and admire the stunning views and amazing wildlife.
Dunraven Bay Storm
Storm Hannah ripped across the west coast of the UK and naturally it was time for me to brave the elements and do a little storm chasing. This was just after a hale storm passed overhead where I managed to capture this amazing cloud formation over Dunraven Bay and the Vale of Glamorgan, South Wales.
You can read my blog post about bad weather photography and why I love to storm chase – Embrace Bad Weather add a new dimension to your photography.
This was taken during a scouting trip to Hell’s Mouth, Porth Neigwl, North Wales. I wanted to try and capture something different from my usual style of photography and I managed to capture this more abstract image from the sky as the waves rolled in.
