Meet on the ledge

By mrswoolybill
Beachcombers bridging the gap between sand and sky.
At one point on Crimdon beach the sea has cut a long narrow inlet, slicing through the sand. I'll show you the bigger picture tomorrow.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

One of my favourite pastimes, Moira, beachcombing. Carol

It's a pity that guy apparently can't let his dog run free... mustn't have control, I suppose.

On days when these beaches are well populated I'm always struck by the way in which space emphasizes separateness, how the small groups of people appear as little isolated knots of humanity, unaware of each other's existence. Another good title might be "Islands."

The low angle is very effective here, and the encroaching shadow feeds the imagination... And something seems to have caught the attention of both the child and the dog... Bill putting the finishing touches to his sand castle perhaps?

Excellent mono people (and dog) study in a fine location, particularly good use of POV.

Got it in one, that's what I wanted here and it's one reason for the crop.
Tomorrow I have the bigger picture, but with a similar crop.
Cheers folks,

The low point of view makes the figures appear to be much larger that they actually are...

Great Photography Moira.

Good point - it's a combination of low pov and telephoto compression. This looks like a wide angle shot because of the letterbox crop but was actually taken at 200mm. Tomorrow's will give an interesting comparison.

Really interesting comparing your image and Alan's today. We go to the same places and see different things. The verticals of the figures look good cutting across the horizontals of the land.

I always think a beach scene in mono lifts it from a colour ''snap'' Moira !!
Fits the crop well here.
Good shot.
Mick.
A wonderful pov and light... and the little dog.. Beautiful Moira... an interesting shot.

A day to clear your head and enjoy life. No matter the weather, the beach can do it.

Like the spread of people in this composition and the mono works very well here.

I like all these stacked layers and shades of gray pebbles, water sky and shadows. The humans seem to belong to as many different shades, only the dog stands out.
Looking forward to the sequel.
