I thought the Thursday challenge would be a doddle this week. After all, there's
a beach at the end of the road that we live on . Admittedly it's a stony beach
but it can look quite nice when the sun is glistening on the water. The only problem
was the tide was out this evening and the combination of mudflats and stones didn't
look particularly attractive. This shot of some withered flowerheads was just an
afterthought which is why one is partly cropped out of the frame but when I came
home and reviewed my images it was the one I liked best.

Beautiful find, Mairead. I love the soft background. I can almost imagine these weeds blowing in the sea air. V

Love the grasses.....very nice!

Nicely done. It's what last year's Queen Anne's Lace do best - watch over the shoreline as a new season begins. It's the way life is. Wonderful image.

The silhouette flower heads are magnificent against the pastel sky. Your DOF is excellent! :-)
Doug Cruden04-Mar-2010 21:24
I like the pastel colours here, just poking through the late afternoon light...I agree about your composition, sometimes rules and 'the proper way to do things' are there to be broken or ignored :o) Lovely shot...

I can understand why it was. The one that was cropped (appearing to "fly" out of the frame) adds to the interest too; it gives the image a small amount of dynamism to offset the tranquility of the other ones. The colours work well giving a good "early evening" mood.
Maaike Huizer04-Mar-2010 21:02
And you should!! It is lovely. Excellent focussing. Lovely light.
