I often stand in awe and admire the beauty of God’s Creation. The colours, textures, tones and shapes,especially the way the light falls and reflects, thus revealing things often overlooked, particularly during the grandeur of a sunrise or sunset, or the spectacle of a rainbow.
I really just want to try and capture and share some of what I see as “The Creator’s Handiwork”.

    Very nice image Phil. Love the rusty colour against the blues and greens and those little concrete blocks in the foreground look perfect

    I just read about the refurbishment project for the pier! What a boon that this wonderful piece of history will be partially retained, at least! I love this image you’ve captured here, Phil!
