Not so sure about "Doggy" in my title looking at the weather we are having at the moment, more like "Foggy". I can't even see my polytunnel in the garden, which means it must be bad as I am sitting in it to write this, just kidding, it is bad though.
Blimey it'll be absolutely freezing in the tunnel tonight, I don't think there is enough hot tea in the world to give me the incentive to sit out there and write this, maybe if a couple of choccy chip hobnobs were thrown in I might be tempted..........not.
Anyway, if anyone has to go out in this soup tonight, please please please drive carefully and take it easy.
Ok, this shot was taken when I took a trip from York back home driving up the coast. I stopped off in Filey and parked on top of the cliff, the sun was beautiful as I had literally just been driving in fog as bad as tonight's, in places it was actually worse, if that's possible.
The sun was reflecting on the sea and the water that was laying on the sandy beach. I spotted this couple walking their dog and noticed they appeared to be having an argument. Sadly a 300mm lens allows for a good shot, but gives no assistance whatsoever to hearing what they were arguing about. Never mind, I do know it was enough for the fella to storm off and leave the lady. The dog, bless him/her didn't know who to stay with and was left wandering between the two trying to get one of them to throw the ball for him/her as they were doing before.
They continued along the beach in this manner until they disappeared from my view, ignoring the dog all the way. I bet the poor dog was trying to figure out what he/she had done.

I hope you like this, thanks for looking and for any comments.

Great use of the available light ~ just wonder if it would be better in letter box format?

Wonderful light, Andy, turning the image into molten gold. I do hope the couple made up, just for the sake of the dog Smile Carol
