This captures the atmosphere of Dungeness so well and I'm glad you found that sky! Sorry I wasn't there!

A very nice shot Derek, it displays the somber isolation very well. I wonder if you could clone out the two rectangular objects on the right, they are rather dense and tend to pull the eye a bit. Very well done either way.................Bob

Beautiful sky Derek, and the dereliction of the boat is emphasised by the white snow patches. Lovely atmospheric image.

I was lucky to get this Sky Ann, The weather was very dull most of the day but I arrived late so decided to stay on when most of the others had left.

The rectangular objects are derelict fishing huts Bob. They are synonymous with the beach at Dungeness so I would want to remove them.

The sky works well with the bleak foreground.....that boat looks like it needs a bit of work! Wink

Derek - Dungeness as I've never seen it before.. The decaying boat, the huts and the plant in the backround are shown in a totally different light here, literally! That moody sky and the dusting of snow on the beach really add to the foreboding atmosphere - wish I was there Sad

Fantastic sky,

Never to crest another wave, the life has gone out of this old hulk left to become a photographers model. You did her proud Derek, a fitting image at the end of the life of a working boat.

These abandoned boats always provide excellent photographic opportunities and composed the shot well here Derek, and the sky is very special.

A great, glowering sky and masterful composition as usual.

A great 1st post the south east meets, as I was driving home the sky was looking nice and I did wonder what it was like there, now I know, I like the way it all points left.

Simply stunning - bleak and strangely beautiful
