Someone placed this shell on one of the sand fence posts on a beach in Norfolk, UK.
The texture of the posts caught my eye and I used a wide aperture to put the background out of focus.
You’ll also note that there is no horizon line in this landscape photograph.
I was told a long time ago that odd numbers, particularly things in threes and fives work well in compositions. I have no proof of this, it is a purely subjective statement but I’d be intersted to know what you think. Please do leave a comment if you know.
This has a feeling of calm about that I find deeply satisfying.
Waves have been breaking on the seashore long before You and I were around.
They will be doing the same long after we are gone. Some might find that thought troubling, however I find a sense of peace in that realisation.
Another painterly quality picture, the breaking waves have the feeling of brushstrokes about them. I do a bit of oil painting as well and I’ll try to get this effect in my next attempt.
