    Hello Marion,

    You have given us an interesting note here and also a very fine photograph to illustrate ti.

    Gosh, isn't it strange how times change? A couple of centuries ago, people would, I imagine, have "looked down their noses" at "mudlarks"; and the conditions in which these people worked to try to scrape a living enough just to sustain them must have been absolutely dreadful. Not to mention the risks of contracting some injury or infection which could easily have proven fatal. But nowadays middle class people can buy their expensive and sophisticated metal detectors and spend their leisure time combing these places in search of some interesting finds, if not valuable treasure, purely for the fun of it. It is a bit strange, isn't it? Just, I guess, a bit like people who go pot-holing for fun while we all think of the appalling conditions under which miners worked. I know - maybe we should all take up the hobby of climbing up and sweeping chimneys - just for fun: now there's a jolly good idea.

    A lovely photograph, very well seen and taken with good light and colours and excellent details too. And it doesn't look as though any of the "mudlarks" here are going to get themselves too messy and muddy either.

    Excellent!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Mike,

    This is certainly trickery of the eyes!
    It's an amazing optical illusion!
    Just your type of shot.
    I enjoyed reading the link.
    The shiny surface of the tiles has stopped it just being a pattern and has added a sense of depth by its reflections.

    Thanks for sharing this,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour Denis,

    As with so many of your lovely photographs, it is the wonderful light which makes this one so special, the warm late afternoon autumn light illuminating not only the beach, the buildings and the boats but also the edges of the clouds, so making them stand out beautifully against the deeper blue sky.

    A very fine composition with lovely light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Mike

    Telepathy or what? Right next door to my post of a couple of moments ago I find one from you; and not just any old post, but a bloody wall as well! I must admit, yours takes the plaudits, though, for being interesting, graphic, intriguing - and practically monochrome! Love it. Hope you're loving Oz.

    Hi Brian,

    This is a beautifully presented photograph with just so many lovely elements to linger over, and it has a lovely peaceful quality too.

    The light on the distant chapel is magnificent and brings out all the details of its fine architecture magnificently; the Adur and its surrounding trees and grassland fill the mid-ground perfectly and the contented horse relaxing in the warm winter sun makes the perfect foreground feature.

    A beautiful image with lovely light and colours, a very pleasing composition, perfect exposure and exquisite details and clarity.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Ciao caro Silvio,

    A very interesting and comprehensive note and a very fine photograph to accompany it!

    This is a very fine composition and, taken with a long lens, presumably from some distance, that has accentuated the wintry appearance and the general mistiness which surrounds this village as it nestles against the wooded hillside. But the light on the buildings magically "lifts" them from their darker surroundings, bringing out their beautiful colours and textures.

    Lovely light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.
