SUNSET SURFERS

By Imagephotographics
Morning everyone !

Many thanks again for all your very kind comments and clicks on yesterdays' image !

Also, A big thank you to the Borrowers for their User Award on PLANET EARTH.

Here is another from Wednesday late afternoon, we had just walked back down from Drunraven to Southerndown Beach, and the sunset had just about finished. There were some very brave/tough surfers entering the sea - liked this image which caught two just going into the surf.

Hope you like it !

Chris

It has come to my attention that you are as bad as I am when it comes to the "wee small hours".
Nice sunset and surfers!

Isn't it cold in the ocean this time of year?? Brr, now I'm convinced surfers can't help themselves! Smile Love the silhouettes, and the subtle reflections.

Another nice shot. Really like the tones and the composition......the slip leads the eye nicely tp the silhouettes. I can relate with these guys......I have surfed in the middle of winter - some of the best waves can be caught at this time of year.

Good morning, Chris. A lovely shot, great composition and I like your silhouetted figures against the subdued colours beyond. (I am obviously a lot worse than Peter when it comes to the wee sma' hours).

Another cracking shot Chris. Wonderfully composed and exposed just right so figures are thrown into silhouette. The causeway leads you into the frame too. Nice one. Paul

The sort of shot that I love - just enough detail within the shadows to give a sense of depth, and loads of character in those silhouetted figures - the easy, relaxed movement of arms and legs.
