I like the light and it reminds me of walking barefoot on such sand.

Robert Hill said...

I like the color and tone - wish I was walking there...

Gordon Mason said...

Ripples are fantastic. Who is/was Al?

Dot O said...

Love the effect of the ripples!

Hermes and Robert - Hello.

It would be cold walking barefoot on these ripples - but deliciously so, I reckon.

Gordon - I understand that Albert used to live in a cottage between this little cove and Sandsfoot Castle.

(Robert - there's a photo of Sandsfoot Castle falling into the sea earlier on this blog

)

Apparently, Albert used to come and tidy the beach . . . just took it upon himself to do so.

The cottage he lived in has gone, as has he, but his care for this small area is remembered locally in the name.

Incidentally, there are times when his tidying activities would be welcome nowadays for it is a good place for teenagers to hang out on late summer evenings . . . and they don't always take their bottles away with them! (Though I always think the remains of small bonfires are exciting to come across.)

Hello Dot.

Yes, I find it quite amazing to see the way the sea leaves behind an imprint of itself.

Lucy, Hi! I try to take a picture a day to go with the entry but sometimes I must fall back on my archives. Since the weather has been so cold and basically miserable here, I am not inspired to go out in pursuit of "that perfect photo" so I take pictures of things in and around my house. While my beagle is a great subject for my pics, I certainly don't want to post about him EVERY day...

Thanks for stopping by and visiting! I am hoping that by year's end I will see an improvement in my photo skills. I love visiting other photo blogs and seeing what has captured the eye of the photographer.

I do love how enticing these ripples look, to let one's feet sink into them, cold or not! :) Oh, and regarding my sunset photos - I think it just goes to show that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and sometimes there is no right or wrong! Personally, I did like them both, they each had their own merits - thank you for your keen insight regarding the one with the foreground visible, very true what you noted!

Lovely pattern, I'd like to be on a beach, cold or not. I'm landlocked!

Lucy Corrander said...

Suzi - I've lived so much of my life near to the sea or right next to it, I think I'd panic if I were ever to find myself landlocked!

Thanks Karen.

I expect you see similar ripples quite a lot near where you live?
