I covet this - well I have this thing about sculpture... But more than that, the sense of emptiness and space.

I didn't know the Vikings took part in the 1066 battle. Perhaps they were there as mercenaries.Wink
As Moira says, this is about the space and emptiness.

Thanks Moira for your Award, much appreciated!

I had to wait a while for a window of opportunity of people walking along the beach, but that was the aim totally emptiness, wasn't sure whether to clone out the pipe/groyne marker in the background, but decided to keep it in for a sense of scale.

Yeah I thought it represented more of a Viking ship, but apparently it's Norman.

The Normans' ships were direct descendants of Viking long ships, remember that the Normans were originally from Scandinavia - north men. There's a bit of history here. The ships also appear in the Bayeux Tapestry.

The Norman of 1066 were effectively Vikings.

Great photo.

I think it makes it!

A lovely monochrome image, excellent composition, and the groyne marker certainly adds depth to the image.
My award.

Thanks again everyone for the awards & positive comments, especially Mrserenesunrise for the Guest Editor Award.

The positivity towards this photo has really boosted my photographic mojo! It's been lacking recently often questioning the point of taking them, so really nice that people have found this photo interesting and worthy of viewing.

All the best,

Rick
