Sea View

View on black


With the afternoon off today I decided no matter what I was going to get to the beach and spend a couple of hours playing about with my camera. I was joined by Charlie Pragnell and despite a few showers we both enjoyed the fact that the weather worked with us rather than against us.


As it happens, this isn't the shot I planned to capture today. I'd revisited a subject that I've shot before but I had a clear plan of another view of it. Sadly I didn't quite manage to pull it off, the incoming tide combining with the soft sand to leave my images not quite as I'd hoped.


However before heading back home I also went to photograph the telescopes that align the promenade which I'd tried before but didn't have the light for. With some nice early evening sunshine pointing in the right direction I got exactly the shot of this that I'd hoped for. For all the problems that Rhyl as a town has, it has a really underrated seafront.
