That works so much better in monochrome. Great shot Lucy.
The one sunbeam aross the picture makes it so cool. Great captured :)
The all weather picture.A new use for a windsock or is there a model aircraft club about?
Soooo nice, and agree with lene the one sunbeam `did` the picture.Sunbeams also in Norway this ady, and me a trip in the wood with my camera, come over!!
I have seen such windsocks along long, very exposed stretches of road in Denmark, and we have them here on bridges. And believe me - they are needed!!
I agree, Lene - that sunbeam struck at just the right moment, and in the right place (for me!).)Lucy
Hello Aileni.This is the causeway between Weymouth and Portland. The cross winds are strong in the winter and can sometimes be a danger to traffic as well as cyclists and pedestrians.There are boats and naval and air-sea rescue helecopters here. It's a poplular place for sailboarders and kitesurfers too.Quite a bleak stretch of road though.And quite a busy life for a windsock.Lucy
It does look like a windy place, from your comment I see the windsock stays busy. I love the rays of the sun coming across the photo.Judy
Hello Hermes.I'm glad you like this photo in Monochrome, Hermes. The light was such that some of the colour photos I took at the same spot look almost monochrome even though they are (theoretically at least!) in colour!)Lucy
Hello Anne.I like the woods in autumn much better than I do in spring because it's wonderful to see the branches re-emerging.Lucy
Hello Rune.There's a bus stop with a shelter on the other side of the road. When there's a strong easterly wind you need to stand in it to avoid being blown in front of the traffic.As you will notice though, from the posture of the cyclist, the weather when I took this photo (yesterday) was calm.Lucy
A great photo! And the sun is wonderful!
Lovely sunbeam. The lamppost is so tall. It seems to reach the sky.
Hello Gry.Not only was the sun welcome in the photo, it was welcome on the day too!Lucy
Hello Mona.It's interesting that you remark on the height of the lamp-post. I see this road a lot but, until I came to take the photo, I hadn't realised how tall these particular lamp-posts are. And they are. It's not just the angle of the camera.Lucy
Resting to another stage, huh? Very nice view!
Those windsocks turn up all over the place....lolLooks very cold and windy....
Hello Sylvia.I remember, when I first cycled much, being very proud of myself when I learnt to go all the way into the town where I lived without touching the handlebars. Dangerous (wouldn't do it now!) but fun.Lucy
fantastic1 I like this one. the sky is stunning.
This is one really great shot! And the sunbeam across the picture, -just LOVE it!
Thanks Robert.I'm glad you like the cyclist and windsock photo.Lucy
Thank you, ElinSire.I'm glad you left a comment because it led me to your own, very beautiful, pictures.Lucy
Great shot, and with a beautiful sunbeam!
Hello Tone. Thank you.It was a beautiful sunbeam - but there was no warmth in it.Lucy
Very nice shot! Long stretch to be riding.
When the sun is fighting against you, just fight back by using it to make great pictures. The sun's rays look great. Well done
Hello Just you Again.It is a long stretch - and by the nature of things, once it is over, there is more to come.Lucy
Hello James.I make a habit of taking photos into the sun because I am often more interested in shape than in detail.Lucy
It looks like there was a stiff wind blowing; it's nice that the exposure has also got cloud detail.
Hello John.The windsock is indicating direction (from the west) rather than strength of wind, which wasn't very strong yesterday morning. Where I was standing was also protected by Chesil Beach which is very high at that point. (Not a 'beach' at all but a huge mound of pebbles, several miles long). On the other side of Chesil Beach the sea tends to be very rough and at one point there is no land between it and the Bahamas - so the wind can be really tough there. However, on this stretch of road, it's the bitterly cold East Wind, coming straight up the English Channel that I particularly dislike!I'm glad you mention the sky. It is something which specially pleased me in this photo.Lucy
It works well with mono, great scene too.
Thanks Pacey.Yes, it is an unusual place.Lucy
I love the light!
That sunbeam is remarkable. Great capture.
Beautiful light! Like the picture..
Hello Mama Zen.Mentioning the light seems to fit your name.Lucy
Hello Robin.So much is down to chance. It's hard to plan for sunbeams but fortunate when they come!Lucy
Thank you Kine.Lucy
Oh! And Kine! Thank you for becoming a Follower!Lucy
Yep looks like a nice place to go biking.
You are right, Al. While I was looking at the cyclist, the cyclist would have been looking at the sea!Lucy
