Evening all!
I've not been posting much lately. Life getting in the way and all that Smile I took this recently and although it may be somewhat boring I like it because it records a favourite phenomenon of mine on my visits to the coast. When the waves are rolling in quickly on a flat open beach the receding wave sometimes meets incoming waves so that momentarily the force of the water raises long ridges along the beach. Seconds after this shot all was, again, flat and gleaming. I wanted the wave ridges to lead to the aptly named Trwyn y wrach /wits - (The Witch's Nose)
Thanks for looking and have a good evening.

Wonderful effect, Alun, and such accuracy with the lines meeting at the 'thirds'. Smile

Boring........... Are you mad........... its a superb image and a keen eye to capture the phenomenon you mention. Your POV couldnít be better for me and the sky is the icing on the cake. If this is boring letís see some of your better images! Get it printed as big as you can and hang it on the wallSmileSmile

The phenomenon is beautifully captured and the composition is both powerful and quite quiet at the same time.
