Great picture Lucy - that sky looks pretty threatening though. Was it taken yesterday ? I got soaked.
Great colors Lucy. Too often water pictures are bright and blue and sparkly. I like this!
Hello Hermes.Yes, it was yesterday morning.We had had a heavy burst earlier and a couple later but it was wonderful at that moment. It was breezy without being unpleasant; the temperature mild. Every so often there would be a bit of a shower but brief bursts of sunshine made it very pleasant.But the sea was very rough - unusually so for the eastern side of the peninsula - and where the walls of Portland Harbour usually keep it quite calm. (Not like the raging which happens against Chesil Beach.)So I found it quite exciting being down there. Lovely.LucyLucy
Hello Janet.This is an unusual colour for this stretch of water, Janet.As I was saying to Hermes, it is usually very calm there but, yesterday, instead of being to see right through the water, the waves were churning the sand - hence the browniness, especially in the bit closest to the shore.But when it is sunshine and clear skies - no-where, I think, could the water be more intensely blue. I caught it on an interesting day.Lucy
Great picture Luce. I love to see threatening clouds over water. You have that and much more here.
It's refreshing to see a shot of the wild coastline, looking, well, wild. And I'm actually very taken with the colour of the moody, stormish sea.
Hello James.Today (Saturday) is full-moon - so it's a spring tide - which is when the sea comes in higher than usual (though the no-moon spring-tides are higher than the full moon ones). On Thursday (when I took this photo) the water was already much further up the beach than it usually is.I was lucky to go out when I did.Lucy
Hello J. I think we are really lucky in this area that we don't have breakwaters. Without them, I find the sight of a rough or stormy sea exhilirating.Lucy
