Travel theme: Beaches

Travel theme: Beaches – between the Mersehead RSPB Reserve and the links at Southerness on the Solway Firth, the wide sands stretch to the far horizon and at low tide the sea all but disappears; this is a never-ending landscape under a never-ending sky. It is only from the beaches that the sheer scale of it all becomes apparent – how small, how fragile we are:

    Love the “drama” of these photos. The last one is my favourite.

      Many thanks, it was quite a dramatic day – it was a very windy day and the sky on the 2nd photo is almost as nature intended – just added a yellow filter. Thanks for stopping by.

    These are astoundingly beautiful – tie between the second and third shots. Outstanding

    The second one (high wow-factor) is the kind of picture that inspires me to reach the next level in photography and image processing. Hat off for the master 🙂

      Many thanks, that is very generous – sometimes it is all down to being in the right place at the right time (hopefully with a camera in hand :-))
