I dragged this little table into the water at Shorncliffe and sat an old picture frame on it as a storm came across the bay at dawn.
I took an 80 sec bulb exposure @ f16 and when I processed it I put the picture ‘into’ the frame and then again into the smaller frame within that etc…

    Who’d have thought global warming would affect the planet so quickly?
    I certainly hope you didn’t repeat the picture within a picture any more that three times – that’s fractal!
    An inspired, if not abstract image here, Ben!
