Taken a few years a go whilst on holiday - this has been processed as part of a series of squared seascapes I've been putting together for print. I'nm not sure it will make the final collection as yet, but its likely to be printed regardless and therefore it qualifies for my portfolio.

The title is influenced by my thoughts of an upcoming holiday - just over a week to go. Can't wait.

As ever comments appreciated.

Superb. The angles of the boards, the breeze in the reeds, the elegance of the lines.

Thanks for the comments and votes. And a big thank you to Moira for her esteemed UA.

Alan: curiously I did look at a darker variant during the processing stage. However, I want the processing in the collection of prints I am working to flow (feel continuous or consistent in some way) - and a darker version feels even more at odds to the others in the set than the obviously foreign setting used for this image. Still, I think I may have another play, and I need more images for the set.

A very well worked composition however I do feel that a tad more contrast might be in order, but hey its all about personal preferences. Well done on the GEA.
