A Normal Day Out

By SlowSong
Our first proper day out for months, so we went to one of our fave places, Heybridge Basin, near Maldon, Essex. A lovely, quaint walk by the sea with a marina, a lock and two pubs. And a tea room. This is the first candid/street shot I've done for ages so it felt like getting back into the old routine. The version is of us having a fish lunch at The Jolly Sailor, and the others are the old wrecks along the coast, now nearly consumed by the sand and rotted by the sea. What a lovely day. Smile

PS: If the colour is a bit strange it's because my PS has decided to muck around with the colour settings without my knowledge. I hope to be onto that little problem soon.

Thanks Diane. Through trial and error I've had to turn off Colour management to get a realistic look. Somehow the computer decided to turn on something else yesterday and everything went yellowish. Flippin' computers!!! Thanks for the info that it looks OK to you. Smile

A great set, Chris, I especially like the look of V1, that food looks tasty (love prawns!) 😋 Some nice grot in the rotting wreck, with my fave of those being the close-up of it in V2 😃 The colour looks fine to me on my screen 👍

A lovely day out indeed Chris. All well captured. I was thinking, in the lead, the fellow with all the hair should share with his co-worker.
