Thank you all for your comments and votes on shadows yesterday, today some images of Sand Bay where our caravan is, this is just across the road from the site, as you can see the weather last Monday was very overcast and it rained very heavy about 7pm, on the horizon is Steep Holm on the left and Flat Holm in the centre, on the right is the south Wales Coast, V2 and V3 I used the Lee Big Stopper, I have also uploaded Cygnet Hospital that is in Sand Bay built in the Art Decor style, one of the inmates there at the moment is Shrien Dewani who they say paid to have his Wife murdered on their honeymoon in Africa, below some info on Sand Bay.

Sand Bay is a strip of coast in North Somerset bordered to the south by Worlebury Hill and to the north by Middle Hope and Sand Point. It lies 2 miles (3.2 km) north of the seaside resort of Weston-super-Mare, and across the Bristol Channel from South Wales. It is adjacent to the village of Kewstoke.

The north end of Sand Bay has become overgrown with spartina grass since the 1950s. This hardy grass was planted to support the banks of a tributary to the Bristol Channel further upstream than Sand Bay. Over the last 20 years the grass has rapidly taken over the north end of the beach and is now beginning to grow in isolated areas of the south end. The grass also began to grow on the beach at Weston-super-Mare, but was removed by the local council.

In the 1980s part of the beach at Sand Bay was raised to prevent flooding by pumping sand from the Bristol Channel up onto the beach. The beach now has two levels, one at the original height near the sea and one bordering the adjacent road at the higher level. The upper beach level has now become covered in grass in many areas (not with the spartina grass which is found at sea level).

Nice to see this stretch of the coast, Trev: it seems to have been very overcast but the diffuse light possibly worked in your favour.
I remember the fairly recent news items on the inmate you mention.
My favourite is V 1, the hunk of tree trunk acting as an interesting f/g detail.
Also a fine narrative about the area.
Ronnie.

I don't think you could have found a better stretch of coast in which to capture such a wonderful set of images. Sand Bay certainly looks quite bleak at this time of year, however imagine it to be much different during warmer climes. I'm with Ronnie, version 1 is a real cracker, however it is closely followed by version III.

No problems finding a space for your beach towel here, Trev. Wonderful open, expansive, coastal scenery, and interesting info re the grass and sea defence.

I really like V2 because it gives a tantalising look at that ocean!
Each image has something of interest though... Very good set. IB

Good image of the Hospital and narrative re it's patient.
Of the beach images V1 is obviously composed well with the log
nicely placed but sometimes on images which are of sky and foreground split,
I like a bit of curve or broken outline so V4 with the curve of the beach is up there, and my favourite
I think is V5 with the light hitting the grasses - as you already know it probably just needs
a bigger object of interest than the branch.
The dramatic sky is great throughout - a useful one for the 'sky folder'.

I waved back, you were just going to fast......Wink

Be sure to have an afternoon down at Ham Wall nature reserve Trev, great time for dragonflies down there at the moment. And if nothing does show well you'll have a good walk! Be careful though as you never know who you might just bump into Tongue

It looks much bleaker than when I was last there about a month ago when the flowers were still in bloom and there were plenty of insects about. A fine set of images of a place I know well.
