Yesterday was a really stormy day, but at least in the morning the sun was shining and the rain and storm hadn't yet started.
We decided to spend a couple of hours walking on the beach and taking mostly rubbish shots.
This group came into view so at least I got one reasonable shot.
I've taken the clarity right down and put on a fair amount of Gaussian blur to try and get a dreamy and sort of mystical appearance.

I'm away a lot at the moment and have very little time for EPZ so I do apologise if I only manage to click and run.
Hope you are all well.

Actually Mick, I would hate to tell you what we found on the beach. There was a toilet roll holder and other assorted detritus, even though the beach had just been cleaned!
Cheers Annette

The manipulation has certainly produced an air of mystery, though reading about toilet roll holders along the beach certainly didn't!! Nice to see you popping in again.

I think the blur is very effective.


An effective piece of manipulation here Annette, this makes a lovely image.

Such an atmospheric shot Annette. It really does have the feel of a windy and stormy beach. Excellent.
