Saltwick Bay (Book Cover ).

By phil99
]I am very proud of this.This photograph of Saltwick Bay area was taken by me in June 2009. It is to be used as a cover for a novella written by Gary Fry who contacted me for permission to use after seeing it on my photography club web site. It has been toned a little differently and the seagull and the figure have been painted in by the artist . It will be published in April by Spectral . The cover text and style may change in format slightly though as this is the first press release version. The cover will wrap round from front to back .

Gary Fry



Many thanks for recent clicks and comments .All very much appreciated ....Phil

Many congratulations, and that's a plus for camera clubs too. The image has been well used - but my own feeling is that the bird is surplus to requirements, it complicates the image too much. Simplest is best.
