Another real Gem Alan. The thing that makes this special for me is the light LNG the horizon and the wet sand.... Superb again... Mono minimalism at its absolute best

Great mono image, Alan. Composition, textures, horizontal patches of light and simplicity.

I know that's what it looks like, but it's actually all shifting light patterns on the sea. No sand. I'm a tricky devil.Grin


Thanks Mark & Nigel- great comments Smile

Beautifully observed, not just the streaks of light but the triangle of vessels. Since there is no clear sense of scale there is more left to our imaginations, always a plus in my book.

Well I'm seeing sand... I'm seeing sky, sea and wet sand distinguished from each other only by streaks of light. But light is the most important element that I'm seeing.

No sand whatsoever, Moira. Just sea (and sky). Trust me.Smile

Thanks, and also to Bill.

The light and ripples on the water make the surface look so uneven giving the impression of land/sand. Strong bands of light and texture with a lovely grainy finish.
