Rising from the dunes

By RipleyExile
Saturday afternoon wasn't the best for blue skies and fluffy clouds on the Spurn Point meet. I took this from the sea wall below the lighthouse to try and get something from the conditions available.

I've enhanced the clouds by burning them in a bit, but nothing too drastic. The rest is as came out of the camera.

Comments and critique welcome.

I hope nobody paints that thing too often, it has a certain character to it when it's 'peeling' Wink

Cheers Don.

I agree Paul. I like how you can see all the individual bricks in the black section. The peeling, discoloured white paint gives it that (a bit too) lived in look. Smile

Too much sun, that's why it's peeling! Should sell it to the Government as a Health Warning shot! Wink

Could be used for more than just a warning against too much sun Fran. I'm sure the health department could incorporate it into other public health campaigns as well. Wink

He was obviously having the bank holiday weekend off then Glynn.

I like the clean composition in this, separating the various textures.
