Day 5 and it is time for a black and white image

Day 5 and its time for a black and white image. As you might have noticed from 4 out of 5 of my uploaded images, that water is a key factor in my landscape work. If you look at my blog 'I-accept-the-7-day-challenge', you will read how artists look at the shapes and tones in a landscape and then it is how to best present the image.

With this landscape, which is of the dilapidated sea defences at Happisburgh, on the North Norfolk Coast, I wanted to promote the graphic structures of the subject and capture the swirls of the waves over the sand by using a very slow shutter speed.

Thank you once again for the fabulous comments and the likes of the previous images seen. Hopefully you will like this image as well! Some of you have shared this image with your own friends which has led to many new visitors to my photography. Please continue the sharing. It is most appreciated!

My first image is a panoramic of the National Trust property at Stourhead in Wiltshire. The colours in late October were amazing. The calmness of the water on this day created perfect reflections of the trees and architectural features above it. I also created the symmetry of the two halves of the picture by placing the horizon at the halfway point.
