52 in 2015 Week 3 Silhouette


Week 3 already and another hard week to try to get a photograph. Weather has been the hampering feature. Poor light, grey skies, bitter cold, gale force winds, not ideal for standing outside with a camera. But last Friday the skies cleared a little in the late afternoon and I took myself down to the seafront hoping to maybe catch the setting sun and a silhouette. In the end I came up with two and I must admit this first one is just bordering on the edge of being a silhouette, but nevertheless it fills the brief.

Although the skies had cleared, providing some good light, it was still bitter cold with the wind blowing off the sea. With the tide on the way in as well I didn’t have a lot of time to shoot on Friday afternoon. But wrapped up well I hung around to take both these photographs.

This is more of a silhouette and with the sun starting to dip it was getting colder and colder. By now the sea was creeping in behind and in front of me so it was definitely time to get off the beach before I got my feet wet.

There you have it, Week 3 completed, only another 49 to go. Next week look out for an opening in a door or window, maybe a hole in a fence. I have some ideas but once again it all depends on the weather

    Both make decent photos, Mike. The second is more dramatic but I like the textures in the water in the upper shot.

      Interestingly enough Andrew I’ve been getting a few comments on Flickr about the textures, caused by the wind blowing straight across the beach.

    I can feel the wind in the first, Mike. I love the textures, too, along with the pleasing composition. Glad you braved the cold…

      It was cold Jane, I don’t know if I’m getting older or it’s just the weather pattern we have at the moment but I seem to feel it more.

    Very nice to see these scenes on the coast. It really looks cold there and it is not just reading your words that makes it look cold. Being at the coast I can imagine the winds were coming in pretty strong and that does add to the cold.

      Although winter has not been particularly harsh this year so far, Yvonne, it has been cold. Luckily we have had no snow and not much ice, but there again, we never do on the coast. However, we do seem to be having more than our fair share of cold, bone chilling, damp days, with horrible grey skies

        I feel your miserable grey skies. We have that same weather here today. It’s drizzling but it’s not as cold as it is where you are. Cold enough though.🙂
