Hi everyone, hope you had a good extended weekend. Iím not back at work until tomorrow. Smile

This is my third upload from the Spurn Head meet on Saturday, I have a few more yet! We were only there from mid morning to early evening, not the best time of day for landscapes, so Iíve faffed about with this image a lot to try and get something from the very ordinary. Iím determined to put something up from what was a very enjoyable day.

Please view large for an extra groan!

Have a good day.

Thanks for looking.

Alan

Nice faffing about Alan Wink.

Great shot. Like the softness on the lighthouse, really does bring the foreground in to play. Super shot.

Looks a little surreal to me with the sharp and colourful foreground contrasting markedly with the softer and more subdued background. It works well though.
