This wouldn't be the Crimdon near Hartlepool by any chance Alan?

Excellent tones and composition, its a shot you could crop in many ways and get a different image each time really like this

there are six layers in the foreground and the way they proceed and meet towards the top left and simply disappear is really engaging.. there is a sense of unification in it and it not only measures space, but as thought time too.. Maybe I myself would have passed it by and i wonder if the basic simplicity has not been robbed of us on the way..
Great eye and great capture.

The type of image which makes mono very exciting.
Beautiful layers and indeed so many crops.
Brilliant processing Alan.

P.S. Thanks for pointing out that highlight in my image of Kerry.
This is is a dramatic and wonderfully composed landscape. A great use of a wide angle lens.

That beautiful undulating line leading the eye into the distance and so many textures. It works so well in black and white that I couldn't imagine it in colour.

Wonderfully observed image, the textures and sinuous lines in the foreground are fantastic, nice pesentation.

The wiggles of the leading lines may ensure that our eyes roam over the image rather than going directly towards any putative vanishing point. You have extracted great character from an empty beach.

This is strangely disorientating. The further we get from the actual land the more secure it seems underfoot. Dangerous...
It's an image that has occupied me for a full five minutes, following the zigzagsm eandering towards the horizon.
And I am uploading from Crimdon for the rest of this week, I think.

It's got the lot Alan, wonderful texture, beautiful composition, awesome leading lines and expertly processed...all trademark stuff of course Wink

I'm looking forward to walking on the edge soon in the Western Isles all going to plan.
Something about the edge of water that can have different feelings to many people.

I was trying so hard not to think of thongs I missed the Mrswoolybill award.
Good for you.

I'd agree with Charlotte it's got the lot, for me it's all about the receding lines to an ultimate vanishing point, great observation and execution Alan, it literally draws you right in!

Perfectly composed, excellent b&w image!

All lines lead to the same spot, very nicely composed.

Nicely stopped down aperture has give you wonderful clarity throughout the frame. I love those squiggly lines of sand and the textures in them. Mono is super for this.
