NO MAN FRIDAY

By Imagephotographics
Afternoon Everyone !

Here is an image taken yesterday afternoon, there was a hint of blue sky, so made off for the coast ! Needless to say, when we arrived, it went black and it hammered down, took shelter under a tree and waited. Then the sky cleared and we had a brief window of wonderful sunshine & blue sky. which only lasted half an hour or so, but long enough to get some shots !

Chose this title, as there was nobody else mad enough to go to the beach on what was a mostly awful day, hence no foot prints in the sand !!

Stopped off on the way home then and got some sunset shots at another location which I'll share with you tomorrow.

Not long after arriving home cold and ready for something to eat, our electricity went off for the night - so didn't get to go through the images until today, hence the late up-load.

Thanks everyone for all your comments & votes on the last three days images - very much appreciated.

Chris

Certainly got to be quick these days, it's hard to believe just how quickly it can change - it's been the same all day again today !

Cracking is all I can say about this, a beautiful shot & not so often you see sand like that without even a mark in it. I'm moving to your neck of the woods. Regards Peter.

Really like the foreground rock (adds to the general great composition) and the beautiful low-angle warm lighting. Yes there aren't many windows of opportunity at the moment. Roll on better weather. Paul

A suitable reward for your persistance and patience Chris, you'd never guess from the image just how brief the window of opportunity was!
