So... maybe we have a theme going here yesterday was Solemnity, this morning Serenity...

Same day would you believe, but taken at the very beginning of the day! Once again, as shot without any processing, perhaps I cold have cloned out the seaweed hanging on the groyne, but then it wouldn't be as shot (maybe I'll do a little processing to remove it another time).

Thanks to all those who stop by and click and comment, your support is always welcome. Have a great Tuesday everyone.

Your title sums it up. Nicely captured Mark. I like the seaweed, and the shutter speed has created a lovely smooth incoming wave.

I would not remove the seaweed. That is part of the character of this shot.

Funny enough I thought the same when I saw this shot,beautiful I might add,,anyway,,it might not be a bad idea to remove it,,the first lenght on the left might be the reason behind the thinking on this,,,,nice timing,,
