January 21 ~ A Stone's Throw

My favourite shot from this morning's short walk on the beach. The light wasn't great, nor were there any waves to speak of, so I spent a lot of time looking down at my feet. The winds have died down here in our corner of the UK, so things were much calmer than they have been. I did want some shots of the waves crashing against the pier, but it just wasn't to be today. This is where the best waves can be found:

The sky was rather dull, so I toned the photograph. As the sea is calm today, the pier is open for walkers; you can go right up to the lighthouse, which is about 1/4 of a mile out to sea. When the wind whips up the waves, the pier is off-limits. I hope that one day soon we have some big waves - I really want a powerful image of them.

Not much else to write about today, I think it's just going to be a lovely lazy Sunday afternoon at home. I have the luxury of being home from work on "study days" both Monday and Tuesday, so I can relax a bit today and not rush around doing all the bits and pieces that normally need taking care of on the weekends, when there is no time on weekdays on account of work. It's a treat, and I'm enjoying it!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

I like the pebble on the beach shot, it is amazing what you can see if you just look closer at things. That has been my problem and still is to a degree, I always look at the big picture never at the small components making up the big picture. I think it is a wonderful shot. The lighthouse will be awesome if you can get those waves.

"A Stone's Through" really shows the beauty of ordinary things. The details in your photos are so sharp!
I hope that you enjoy your time off. Hope you had a wonderful Sunday!

The pebble is excellent, I love the way the the movement in the sand looks like it is flowing out of the stone! Nice lighthouse shot too, has a kind of nostalgic feel to it :o) Hope you enjoy your time off this week and take things easy :o)

I like the stone pic very much. It's the sort of shot Phil sees and captures but i never do.

Well, I like both photos, Anna. The pebble shot is fantastic and I'll be spending more time looking down as well as around me.

But to be able to live so close to the sea is awesome and I just so like any photos like your pier.

Keep up the great photo-taking! You're doing so well.
