Well I'm stumped how this got here!
There is a sports related saying in Britain, "rain stopped play" which we tend to say when a cricket match has to be halted. Well I can apply it to my beach adventure or should I say non adventure this week. It has been persisiting down all week so one we made earlier as they say. A mid week monochrome, from midway along the beach.
Things you find on the beach in Ramsey
I was hoping to find lots more sewaeed, groups of birds, odd items but to no avail. I did happenstance upon the tree stump on the beach nestling amongst the rock pools. Not going to reveal exactly where, so I can return and see if the tide has swept it away, it remains, or the beach volunteers have removed it. I'm hoping it's a keeper. It's a nice rough textured material to photograph against the smooth pebbles and lucid water. I photographed as a vertical but it's an image that could be shown anyway round as it's not really grounded. I took this with the little Olympus just for fun. It is all very well me saying it's the photographer not the camera, but then I have to demonstrate this. Leaving the big Nikon and lenses at home is not only lighter but makes me work harder to find an interesting suitable image. The only difference with the Nikon would be no bleaching of colour on the trunk, but that's it. Framing would be the same for both why - repeat after me "it's the photographer who thinks the image not the camera." Might have to use this as my mantra
I'm really not up to much blog wise at the moment.Late post, really busy and not much free time G's new assignments.
Out of interest have you found a tree on the beach?
