St George's day at Freshwater Bay

I saw a few mentions this morning of it being St George's Day and it seemed appropriate to celebrate it visually with a photo containing the flag of St George. I recalled a photo shoot i'd done a few years previously at Freshwater Bay that i hadn't quite gotten around to working on yet, so here it is, its a photo from 2009, but its very much a 2012 creation for me, having a little play with flypaper textures to create a painterly feel to the whole thing.

 

And of course i had to have some lovely altocumulus clouds and sunshine to make up for the fact that St George's Day 2012 is actually cold and grey and rainy here on the Isle of Wight.
