It was a cloudy day, when the light came out, I saw the pavement's lines looked like this. I thought if one was a crab, one would see the sea like this.. just keep going, crossing the rock..you would be ended in the sea...Grin, and then I thught all the small creatures living on the ground would see their surroundings like this, spiders, insects, etc..or is it? I don't know much about insects, I could only take a photo for them.. thanks for looking. Just for fun.

A very thought evoking image, one filled with beautiful tones and textures. "If I may be so bold to suggest a tight crop along the top in order to remove the background, this may or may not prove to be more appealing?".

Regards Nathan

Thank you very much Nathan. Advice is taken..Grin, yes, the top (and bottom, I think) could be cropped off a bit. It is nearly the original frame, apart from a tiny rotate to correct the horizontal line..
Thank you Nigel.

Love itGrin

A wonderful, intriguing image, Jasmine. I thought the foreground was a ploughed field at first. Excellent pov, and the lines lead you into the image. The rocks should act as a barrier to the eye going further but you seem to catapult over them into the harbour and beyond. The differential focus makes such a strong image. This is different and definitely in the category of 'I wish I'd taken it' Grin

Thank you Dave.. it's Whitby, near the cliff. You know the place going down to the sea, and the right side is the jetty, you could see the other wall as background..I didn't remember that the path was there before when I went there more than 15 years ago.. but it is now.. you may find a perfect shot there...but it seems that it is impossible to get any fossil from the cliff now. The council put a lot of big rocks in front of the cliff, I guess that it was for safty reason.. I learnt that somebody was died when the cliff fell this March, I don't know when they put the rocks there. Thanks again.
