Just after dawn and a clear blue sky sits over the lovingly cared for coastguard cottage named "Prospect Cottage" lying just inland from the shingle beach in Dungeness, Kent, England.
Regrettably I have found it necessary to add a discrete watermark to my images posted on TE as some have been hi-jacked and are now being used commercially on other websites, without my permission.
I realise it is impossible to stop people sharing images once posted on the internet and I have no real issue with that, it is flattering to know that they like them that much………but to make money from them is another matter and infringes copyright.
My anti-virus software dislikes the forums on TE! So please do not think I am rude if I do not answer any comments or questions raised…………

It makes a delightful and charming photographic subject this wooden coastguard cottage. Seen here under an attractive light and backed by that gorgeous clear blue sky. I like the framing offered by the weather-worn fence on the left. Top class technical presentation.

Very good composition and colors. Dungeness is very useful and creative for photographers, so we can see in Your gallery.
Have a nice day

Wonderful composition. The little red dot on the roof is fab.
On my screen the FG looks a bit over done, but maybe it was just the special light.
Very attractive all the same,

sei bravissimo nel trovare questi soggetti e ovviamente poi ci metti anche del tuo con i colori forti e vivaci e il cielo polarizzato che fa da bella cornica.
Sembra quasi un angolo di presepio, di quelli che a volte durante le feste natalizie si vedono nelle chiese.
Ciao e buona serata

As soon as I saw this picture, I was sure that I had seen a previous one of this cottage in your gallery. But, no, I was wrong - I was remembering your photograph of Garage Cottage which presumably is quite nearby.
Taken in early June, this reminds us of the wonderful late spring and early summer which we had - something to cheer us up now that the weather is starting to get colder and wetter again.
The warm early morning light has illuminated the front wall of the cottage beautifully, bringing out every detail of those lovely yellow-painted window frames which complement the deep blue sky perfectly. The bright flowers in the foreground are delightful and you have used the old wooden post with its rusted ironware to good effect as a frame.
Fine composition, lovely light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

you don´t have to be on Santorini to create so marvelous views.This one is really fabulous.The morning light,vivid colors and finally the way you composed and framed the scene make the shot so captivating(great idea with the FG and this wooden element in the left part of the image).It makes the picture complete.
Have a good day

The yellow windows of the cottage contrast superbly against the richly saturated blue sky above. Fantastic density with a perfect exposure to emphasise the lighting and textures. Wonderful saturation and impeccable sharpness. I like the wide angled framing. Have a great weekend. I may take a week off tomorrow and go somewhere!
