Draining

    1. Sylvia – thank you I am glad you appreciate the depth on view – but as a beach and coast lover I feel sure you will have seen this type of texture and fresh sand space in your neck of the woods.

  1. I could write loads about this photo, but I better restrain myself and keep it short πŸ˜‰ It’s brilliant, I found myself looking at the little drainage channels in the sand and rushing towards the wave line, which happens to be very close to the horizon. It doesn’t get more ‘open space’ than that, should get any seafarer’s and would-be seafarer’s heart racing.

    1. Thank you Sonja – very happy with the positive response to an image I dragged my heels on publishing as I wasnt sure there was enough to interest people – what do I know

    1. Yes – I think it would benefit from the larger scale.- i checked out the picture on the Avid theme (live preview) which has full scale images and get a sense of the detail I experienced on the beach.

  2. I found it hard to take my eyes off this picture, it draws me to the horizon and makes me feel wind blown and free. It’s a smasher, and no mistake. Keep on being inspired! πŸ™‚

    1. The thing I am starting to get here is – when you are out there the wonder of the visual catches your breath – rarely however is the shot in the can what you remember in your minds eye. Then I realised at home you don’t have the sense of the outdoors and the sounds or breeze in your face.

  3. I generally go in the opposite direction, focusing on the intricate patterns in the sand…. I like this open approach. Perhaps I’ll have to give it a shot, too. πŸ™‚

  4. The first thing I do on landing in Scotland is to make for the shore – maybe I have seabird genes – the effect is instant freedom. This is a beautiful reminder.

      1. I had a great discussion with some friends last week and our conclusion was that our natural state is emptiness . This leads to the cravings that we all feel to add something to our lives but it also means that we also have a longing for the very emptiness which we are – a homecoming rather than something to be avoided or feared.

  5. I like the drainage lines in the foreground as well as the overall effect. So your comment got me thinking. All it takes is to give you a compliment and I could send you off in another creative direction. I must say that is tempting.

  6. Ah yes, oodles of glorious space. Love it. At the risk of flattering you even more, I always know when I come to your blog that I am going to get a blast of wonderfully fresh air. This image is no exception,

    1. Adrian ha ha you can get of that trademark shot stuff. I am very pleased with the response to the shot though – held back publishing it ages – glad I did.
