Ramsey Jetty in perspective.
Still on the beach, well obviously I'm still on the beach as that is the sea and that is the jetty. Would you jump off there though? Now I know you may not think it's a great height but I am talking perspective. You know, it's in the distance far away, will look smaller than the subject in the foreground. Anyway I digress. Would you jump off this jetty into the freezing water below? Me, no, don't be stupid I'm the photographer. I just take images of idiots-I mean brave adventurous types doing this kind of jolly jape. It's called tombstoning in case you didn't know.
I will tell you all about the island and tombstoning, or another time though. Usually cliffs but in the absence of cliffs the kiddies have adopted the Jetty. It is the Isle of Man, we improvise.
I was going to finish the beach walkabout today but I've a few more you can have. For those interested in the photo graphical(is that even a word two words?) aspect of today's image please note this totally ignores rule of thirds, but is more concerned with composition and optical illusion of the lighthouse. I am not spoon feeding you today with the intricacies of photography. You can work things out for yourselves by now, I have faith in you. Like the bridge and the pier the jetty is another static subject for a photo series. I like things that don't move and and don't speak. Perfect subjects. No quibbling.
Please excuse the lack of facebook input tonight. I will make amends tomorrow.
For those who follow the blog it's Friday and we know what that means. Southern Comfort.
