Standing on a dry patch.

By franken
Another from Cold Knap in Barry.
I've no idea as to what the two people are doing?
The bicycles are perilously balanced at the top of a steep drop to the beach.
I've not been down on the beach for well over twenty years as getting down is fine but getting back up again is a battle of climbing a steep incline of loose pebbles.
The tide covers the entire beach at high tide.
I've added a colour version.

Good to see someone has left what appears to be an empty beer can on the beach for others to admire, bastards. I remember having a night on a bench in Porthkerry park if my memory is working, neat place thanks for posting.

Playing noughts and crosses, perhaps? Sand is perfect for that...

Both versions work Ken but the mono just edges it for me!

a perfectly constructed image
and both versions work fine, possibly because there isn't much colour in v.1

Mono for me too Ken. Like how you've composed and focussed this.

Mono seems to hang together better. Hope they get the noughts and crosses finished before the tide comes in!

I do not blame you for not going down to the beach Ken, I think going down the pebbles would be just as tricky as going up SadSad
Mono for me Smile
