Before The Rain

By jeanie      
Well its taken about 6 years for me to go and take a photo of the statues but I finally did it last night! Met with some super moody light when I arrived........the mood caught up though and turned into a massive downpour!! Good way of clearing the beach though hehe.. Had a good hour aferwards back out on the sand after the rain clouds blew over.

A bitter sweet evening though as my mate was in a car crash en route to join me.. she is sore but car written off Sad

Met some folk at sunset who know many mutual photo friends... small world!

Mand, This one's for you - keep taking the Codeine! xxxx

This is a lovely capture, the colours and figure work well, however would crop the top , about 1/5, it would move the horizon up and I think it would further improve the composition.

Hope your mate is ok Jeanie....forget the car she is more important.
This is a fine place when the conditions are right.
Excellent work and worth the wait until after the storm.

Thats exactly what I said, Tom.
She is a trooper and I am sure she will come through.. although a bit in a Codeine induced haze today no doubt!

The conditions were super last night Tom.. itching to go back now hehe. Smile

Well worth the 6 year wait. The light and colours are exquisite.

SO glad your friend came out of that crash not at all like the car did...*phew*.

All the best to her and a speedy recovery.

Hoped to go there when we were in Liverpool a week or two ago, but not a chance, total rain!! Would have loved for it to have been like this though.
Hope your friend has a speedy recovery.

Somewhere I have yet to visit and like this a lot. Best wishes to Amanda wife would share her pain as her car was written off a couple of weeks ago.....and she only got it two months ago. Luckily she too came out with just bruises and a bit of whiplash Smile
