    A brilliant brooding shot, love the shades of silver light slipping in!

    No amount of colour could give more to that picture. A superb black and white image!

    Wonderful. Always love your B&W photographs!

      A huge thanks Elizabeth and I am still debating as to go complete down the black and white route as my gut feeling is saying I should produce more B+W work as it is such more emotive for me It is strange to say but I get more understanding of the landscape or coastline when thinking how this image will be in B+W. I am forced to think even more about my approach to photographing the subject matter. Whoops I am going on a bit…. I do hope that by now the issues with your mac have been resolved and that you have an enjoyable weekend.

    There is such a looming feeling hanging over this pictures. The storm is about to hit the coast – or something like that. At least those clouds back there dense and heavy. Love the photograph and the black and white tones. And of course the title makes me think of an old Yes album…

      It was very much a few days of storms and inclement weather so it was very much a time of follow my heart and to be recording this in the best way I know how. Atmospheric skies and raging seas in my minds-eye can only be seen in black and white as we would be too often distracted by flashes of colour such as the gulls, the green grass or the dark grey/blue clouds. Oh ! and Otto you are so right ..the album by Yes and the distinctive voice of Jon Anderson.Did you know he is touring at the end of 2013 into 2014? Hope you have an enjoyable weekend

        I did not know Anderson was touring now. I thought they were long gone.

        Me too, but he is doing some gigs in USA + Iceland.

    Such a brooding shot, and yet somehow I feel hope seeping in with the light from the left 🙂 gorgeous shot.

      A massive thanks Seonaid and I like what you feel about this image, the sense of hope as the light begins to change in contrast to the gloom of the passing storm. Once again many thanks.

    It’s the clouds…so foreboding. Menacing.
    Do we know what comes next? Do we want to know…..
    Angry skies. Shiver…

      A massive thanks R. and it was a very blustery hour+ on the cliffs close to home, but it was great to clear the cobwebs and watch a storm develop out to sea. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. J.

    You know, these recent photos of yours have been almost an exact reflection of what I’m feeling. Stop that! No, I’m kidding, you’re not to know, but I do find it intriguing. This one feels so lonely and desolate, especially with the fence. I would be the one standing behind that fence clinging on for life! The lighting is lovely.

      Melanie, I hope you do not mind me saying this but you have planted a seed of worry in my mind. I do not know how to reply as I feel it seems there is a lot to ask and say, but I am hoping that you are Ok. I remember you said that you had a phobia of water that you were over coming and looking at my work has been a type of therapy. I am glad if my images can provide a help in any way possible, a chance to overcome something , the possibility to escape to another land and seascape just for a while. Photography and the work I produce is as very solitary pursuit and through my blogging I feel connected to to my “blogging family” which allows for sharing, discussion, sadness and laughter, through all of our posts. We just need to remember that the posts we read or look at the images, are produced by “real people” with lives and emotions and at times we cry for help and a bit of support.
      I do hope you have an enjoyable weekend.

        You are a dear! I am doing well and it is so kind of you to be concerned. But yes, I do still have a healthy fear of water. I nearly drown as a child and haven’t really had much success with overcoming it. So, I live with my fear of being in water and enjoy the beauty of it from the sidelines. Your photos are so real, so full of beauty and life that I can’t help but be moved by them, and sometimes that fear comes up, but it is healthy and grants me an opportunity to feel and work with it. You have my gratitude.

        You are more than welcome Melanie and I am so very grateful for your wonderful comments and continued support
