Silk and Stones

By BillyGoatGruff  
Hi there everyone!

Whoopee, I'm back on line at last!

Had to move my office to allow for decorating my study and, wouldn't you just know it, nothing worked when I plugged it all back together! Rats!!
Still having trouble with the strength of the connection, but I will hopefully be able to catch up with everyone's pf's over the next few days.

Thanks hugely for the support on my last efforts, and for dropping by today.

From Durdle Door, looking southwest. A blend of two exposures to control the enormous dynamic range from shooting straight into the sun, despite the grad. A simple and uncomplicated composition, made beautiful (to me at least) by the light and emptiness of this amazing place. And, yes, the beach really is red!

Cheers for now - I'm off for a glass of wine to celebrate fixing my printer - another little casualty of my office move!)

Fabulous large Bill, I love the sky colour, the light on the cliff and the superb detail in the shingle beach.

This is just soooo beautiful Bill. I've mentioned it before, but this brings such happy memories for me. With my young family sat on this beach opposite the collapsed cliff line that you can see in the water. Swimming out to the exposed cliff line with my old dog, and enjoying the crystal clear waters. Happy days. Thanks for taking me back there!!!

Great image Bill. Well composed and wonderful glowing colour. An instant fave.

It's always the way with computer stuff. Move it and find it was only the dust holding it all together!
