Morning everyone !

Many thanks for your comments & clicks on THE OLD AND THE NEW, much appreciated.

Had a busy day today, got all my bulbs planted ready for the spring, so that's the garden sorted now, hopefully just one more lawn trim, then a rest from gardening for a while.

Was given some really old photographs yesterday, been asked if I can restore them, some of which are roughly 130 years old, all torn, creased and literally falling apart - so started working on one of them today - don't know how successful they are going to turn out, but I'm having a go !

Took this shot quite a few weeks back now, an evening walk along the prom - loved the colour and clouds in the sky, so thought I'd share it with you until I get out and take some new images.

Good morning, Chris,
It is indeed very well worth sharing, with that very moody sky, but just a hint of light percolating through. As Jenn says, ti looks as if there could be a downpour at any moment.

Drama and mood aplenty in the sea and sky. Good luck with the restoration, keep saving as you go along, I've fallen foul of that when the computer runs out of memory.

Best viewed large for the full effect Chris...nice one although on my mointor the left hand side is a little too dark for me.....or praps just a white border to break up the background?

Flipping cold up here the last 24 hours...and can't shake off this bug Sad

Yes Al, that's a big black coud to the left, the sky was just clearing after a huge storm. Hope you'll be better soon, it's freezing here too this morning.

How I envy you - you walk out of your door and there is beautiful scenery all round. You really make it your own - this is a super shot. I love the way the ripples lead into the image and on to the horizon.

Wow, what a sky!!

The sky & sea seem to be leading you into the centre of the picture.

The only thing missing for me is a focal point at the end of all these lead-ins. But it is a very well exposed scene.

A very dramatic looking sky, and a super capture, Chris. Good luck with your restoration work - I was once given this task, and it took me ages, and it was only one image!

A good, moody sky and nice texture on the sea. I think it would be even better taken perpendicular to the shoreline, so the waves were coming straight towards you, rather than appearing in receding perspective. Turning further to the right would also have removed the very heavy and dark area of sky on the left, which makes the photo feel a bit unbalanced. Overall, though, it still works well.

What a beautiful capture of a dark turbulent sky and clearing clouds... As the whisper soft pinky hues of the setting sun catch the waves as well as the dissipating clouds... this is a superbe image.
