I am really glad you reverted to plan B. as in beach. And I like the complementary green. Amazing how two square bolts create a standard hex offspring
I think I have to emmigrate to Scotland for a dryer climate, here even the rust is too wet at the moment. And I got just the thing for you, but as you know best, one has to wait for the right conditions.

And you've been "featured" Mick. Nice one. I like the touch of the little drifts of sand(this must have been shot from above?)and the wood grain around the hex nut is marvellous.

It was always going to be Plan B, I reckon. This doesn't look like the sort of beach for ladies' beach volley ball. It looks like my sort of beach.

Can you see the face in this photo, Mick?
Eyes, nose and mouth clearly delineated
Must be a portrait of a member of Big Aggie's volleyball team, however much you try to persuade us that it's just three rusty nuts.
I bet they practice their sport by throwing dockers over the sea wall.
You're a brave man to attempt such a close-up.

I don't think a women's volleyball team would have such lovely shapes and textures as found in this shot Mick. So plan B works very well. Moira

Another good one with the interesting nuts and bolts,
oh and washers, aging against the colourful timber.

Another great capture……..

Don't think you will find volleyball going on in these temperatures. wait till its a bit warmer Mick then try. Plan B looks good though. Paul

The rusty bolts and textures in the wood will do quite nicely thank you. I don't think epz is ready for the sight of Big Aggie and her friends in size 36 shorts and vests playing beach volleyball!Grin
