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!

Day 4 and half way through the 7 day challenge

Half way through the 7 day challenge and i have chosen a seascape from Burnham Overy Staithe as my subject. I love this place and whenever we travel to the North Norfolk coast we have to visit this very quaint stretch of coastline. The fish stall there sells the most delicious cockles and whelks and the coastal path takes you to some amazing boat wrecks, fishing huts, nets etc. The blue boat stuck on the mud banks was there to be captured. I was drawn to the colour similarity of the boat and the sky. I hope you enjoy it!

The Landscape Challenge......Day 2

Day two and the subject changes to a cold and frosty early morning in Norfolk. When a severe frost, a body of water and a strengthening sunrise come together then beautiful mists are created that hover above the surface of the slow, meandering stream. I love the way the blades of grass are silhouetted against the sunrise and I wanted to accentuate the frozen clumps of marsh grass.
Thank you for all your great comments and likes for my previous image of Stourhead. I hope you enjoy this image as well?
