Gimme Shelter

from the rain, because it's not always blue skies
 


A Saturday photo. The place where I sit before photographing Ramsey Rugby, and the half time break. The beginning of the season is around late August each year, and blue skies abound. Fast forward a few months and winter rugby games are accompanied with torrential rain, and howling gales. This is where I seek shelter. This bench nestled within a brick structure on Mooragh Promenade, overlooking the Irish Sea. There is more than one of these shelters along the promenade, but this is the one right behind the rugby pitch. Though with the horizontal rain, it's not always as sheltering as it should be. Theme day on the blog today, with all the other City Daily bloggers is Shelter.

It's the other beach, not my office beach. On a clear day, lovely view. I'll post the progressive views as the seasons change. If I can see through the rain :)

Looks like a great place to use as home base for your rugby photos! A very nice view.

I bet that shelter has seen a lot of action over the years

I can't remember the last time we had horizontal rain Jane :) unfortunately! Do you get fed up if someone pinches your spot :)

It always stirs my soul, being near the ocean. I wonder whether this sensation dwindles when one lives right there.
