New Brighton

By SpeedAltStar
Having seen lots of fantastic uploads of images from New Brighton, I've always fancied having a mooch around the place. So Si and I had a look around the place today and I was really impressed. There is such a lot to photograph. We came away knowing that we'd only scratched the tip of the iceberg in terms of photo opportunities.

Now I know that, strictly speaking, we were there at the wrong time of day for landscape work. And I've taken the images hand held without a tripod. However, I've got this one and one or two others that I think are worth an upload.

So, thanks for looking. I hope you like.
And any advice/feedback (as always) is welcome.

Take it easy and have a good weekend.

Quote:the wrong time of day

could equal an interesting, challenging time. I'm not actually sure where New Brighton is (they never let me take Geography O Level because of that sort of thing), but I like it. Soft subdued grey/green tones in the rock, very English. The arrow-head of rock to the left of the lighthouse is somehow very important.

Moira, I know I can rely on Bill and your good self to allow me latitude with the light Smile

Interesting you mention the breaker on the left. As there is not much of it showing I almost cloned it out but left it in because I felt that it balances the curving off of the formation below it.

I've got some abstracts to upload too (including some rusty bits) ooh er I hear you say Smile

Cheers, Ken.

An interesting image with the irregular pools and rocks, almost an abstract of their own. The light suits me just fine. Yet another addition to the must-visit list!
