Go Fly a Kite...

By NDODS    
Good Day to you all ePz

Thank you for taking the time out to view, comment and vote on my upload yesterday. A further mention going to: Brandish (Martyn) for presenting me with his User Award.

Todays image comes from a rather wet and wind swept beach at Goring however there were a few fool hardy kite surfers battling with the winds an the ebb and flow.

I hope that you have a great day ahead whatever you me be getting up to. For me it will be a restful day and maybe a walk later on.

Regards as always NathanGrinGrinGrin

It looks very windy and a good day for kite flying. Could rain at any moment by that sky. Well captured Nathan.

Looks cold Nathan, even though its still stuffy and warm here, I love the mono conversation really suits the scene, lots of waves crashing in.
