Captured during a break in the clouds during a recent visit to Legion House at Western Super Mare, someone told me the name of the large piece of rock stuck on the horizon, but with my memory, I simply can't remember it's name.

Looking forward to seeing all your images today, feeling quite bright, and up beat.

Highest Regards to you all Nathan

Good strong composition with straight lines in the posts and horizon and nice curves from the tracks in the sand and clouds.
Good to hear you are feeling a bit more like yourself today, Nathan......keep it up.

Sometimes a picture captures your heart with its simplicity and this one captures mine. I like the trails in the sand, the perspective and the undulating shape formed by the top of the posts which also form a straight line which lead the eye to the horizon. Well done.

Great Capture Nathan, I have been to WSM twice and have never noticed your capture, which goes to show the large gulf between a
Photographer (you) and a Snap Shotter (me). well done and keep getting better in health, dont beleive the Doctors, I have passed at
least 5 'use by dates'. Eric.

Photography is great therapy!
This is unusual in several ways - the use of portrait, the low tide. I love the tracks in the sand.
I think the horizon needs rotating a degree or two but I wouldn't lose any sleep over it...

Wishing you all strength.

Hi Nathan,

Good composition and an excellent choice to shot in portrait, nice shot.

Do you think that if you broke a bit off the rock it would say "Weston Super Mare" through the middle Wink

Take care
