Been away for a week, visiting my daughter in Folkestone, amongst other things. Preparing for visiting royalty next week as well...

A simple offering from the bustling (although you wouldn't know it from this viewpoint...) harbour at F'stone. In my humble opinion, this looks better in b&w than in colour...but for me, that's not really a surprise now, is it?

Off to catch up a bit, see y'all later.

Thanks for bothering.

Wonderful in mono. Like the swirls in the sand. How nice those 2 people in this too, shows how tall that wall is.

Nice one - high horizon, foreground swirls of sand and water, and those two tiny figures commanding a huge amount of space.

Great viewpoint permits the successive bays to advance towards and across the eyeline dramatically, even majestically. I like the conterpoint between the beached boat almost out of frame and the couple rushing into concealment behind the jetty. And of course the excellent b&w.
Will you be reporting back from the Royal Visit?
Regards
Bill

It's the patterns and whorls in the sand that really catch my eye, Malc: and I can believe that these features might show up all the more in this B and W presentation.

A great mono image, I really like it Malcom, may I suggest that there are 2 images here 1, the view as it is and 2 a crop from the top down to just below the harbour, IMHO it makes a great abstractSmileSmile

Obviously haven't seen the colour Malc but it certainly works well in B&W - great image with bags of atmosphere

These two tiny figures are so important, I would hate to contemplate the image without them.
Shows the pitfalls of walking across a shallow harbour as the tide goes out. Holes and channels just waiting for the wrong step.

Does Norway have any colour? Tongue Nicely done, Malc, can see some variations coming as well...
