The danger of metal Groynes close to the shore – this is at low tide – glad I am not into small sailing boats!!!

    That 9 stop’s an absolute beaut isn’t it Bob? This is a real marvel and i’ll tell you why, I had to check your narrative was the same day we met as I didn’t even see this shot at the time. (Must have been busy up to my knees in water at the time probably)

    Just love the misty effects and minimalist approach to this. Love it

  • Thank you Stuart for your super comment. Yes I love the filter – did you get anything with it? Took it around the time you got your wellingtons full!

    I love the tones and subtly inherent in the image. Fabulous photography Bob.
