Weekly Photo Challenge: Texture.  This last week I had an overnight stay in Dumfries & Galloway after a less than impressive performance at Colvend’s Open.  An evening amble along the coast helped put things in perspective.

Kippford overlooks Urr Water not far from where it flows into the Solway Firth.  The road through the village runs out at The Ark as it becomes single track access for the string of houses that hug the shore.  A few hundred yards along this track there is a series of art works created from driftwood and found objects. Down on the beach is this weathered installation which is all about texture – you know exactly how these surfaces feel without the need for touch:
