what's missing...

I am!

Daisy's not allowed for proper walks for 5 weeks yet and she demands full attention at home so I'd not been to the beach for days apart from a couple of brief trips...

A very quick walk with little Daisy to the beach. We were here last night too and she was running full pelt beside me. She's going to be fast when she's bigger - and she's going to be a lot bigger!

A fun training course today with 3 photographers with whom it was a pleasure to pass a couple of hours. I'd been discussing dust on camera sensors so was a bit alarmed to see this picture. On the face of it, this looks like an excellent example of how dirty a sensor can get. In fact these are out of focus flies buzzing over the skaith which was between me and the horses.

The skaith was a bit scummy today which explains the flies. This shot has a greater depth of focus which means that the flies are visible, with their reflections, all over the near surface of the pond.

A simple composition eliminating all but the coble and the flat calm sea. My favourite shot of the day. I love the delicate texture of the sea with just a few ripples revealing its presence.

It's really interesting to see how many different views and prospects you find at your home beach every day. But we really have to think about establishing a coffee shop on or even in the vicinity of your lovely beach section.
Don't you think it would be a great vision to sit at the shoreline, having great views to the sea or castle ruin and enjoying a tasty Italian caffè (espresso or cappuccino)???
