Following on from the previous post, this is evidence that the beach was not entirely empty. It was a bitter March day with a stiff wind coming in off the sea – not a day for sunbathing but perfect for flying a kite. The beloved is exiting stage right – a Geordie girl, even she has had enough of the north east’s biting cold for one day:
(just experimenting with soundcloud – a tribute to Wilhelm Reich, it has some vague relevance to this day)
Love the surrealistic feeling in this. 🙂
Thanks Malin – it does have that sort of feel to it and I am not sure why – maybe it is the hooded figure (straight out of Don’t Look Now 🙂 …..the beloved is better looking than that though)
It’s probably everything. The landscape, people that are small silhouettes, the hooded figure, the kite in the air… Everything. Feels like a landscape on the moon …
The wind can make a warm day feel cold, I can imagine how cold it must have felt by the sea in March. What a beautiful photograph, so dramatic!
Many thanks – our north east wind is a particularly cold variety – straight from Siberia 🙂
Windy days on the beach…makes the ears ache just thinking about it.
There is compensation – the golf club clubhouse is adjacent to the beach entrance and they sell excellent bacon sandwiches all year round 🙂
Like kite-flying on the Moon, if it were possible. Wonderful image.
Many thanks Richert – a neat surreal idea 😉
Love kite flying on the beach! Stunning photo.
Thanks – me too, wish I had taken one with me.
Love the photo and I quite like Kate Bush too. I do think Sound Cloud adds to the image, and keeps people’s attention longer. 🙂
Thanks Jo, I must do that more often 🙂
Wonderful shot with almost IR tonality. Ahh, KB’s Cloudbusting brings back memories…
Many thanks Graham – I was surprised how well that image converted to b&w (using OnOne). Cloudbusting is a fantastic track which just never seems to age.
