Good Morning Everyone,
We have just returned from a few days camping at Silverdale, which is a pretty village, right on the coast in North Lancashire.
My photograph shows Morecambe Bay. The sea levels alter enormously between low and high tide so, as this is low tide, the sea is right in the distance with huge expanses of wet sand in the f/g.
It is a westerly facing coast so this had to be a contre jour photograph. I just loved the way the wet sand reacted to the sun. There is some lens flare which I decided added to the effect, so I left it intact.
It is a bit of a different photograph, for me, so I will be very interested to read your comments.
I wish you a happy day, Bev :-)

I like very much the mood of your picture, the sun hidden by the clouds illuminates the wet sand of the long beach and the sea in the background. Nice different grey hues due to the clouds shadows.
See you soon

beautiful the effect of light on the bay.

Beautiful reflections of the sunlight in the different water surfaces. A fine pattern from the clouds.

An image full of drama and very well exposed. I like the play of light across the glistening sands and that lovely sky. In fact, I like the whole composition very much indeed including the lens flare that doesn't bother me at all. Well done, thanks for sharing.

Un contre jour très bien réussi. Tu as réussi à éviter tous les pièges de ce genre de photos qui donne une couleur très sombre à la mer.

the exposure of this shot is just fantastic
great lightness and sharpness
marvellous mood with a hidden mystery
the greatest beauty in this shot is
the surface of the silver sea painted
by the wind

The foreground of the sea with all these silver stars as reflection is wonderful.
Indeed an other picture but with the nice cloudy sky very pleasant to look at
Nice perspective and depth picture, and panorama view
Excellent composition, lovely presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.

This is a great photo, but the very special light made me think it was the moon shining on the sea, not the sun shining on the wet sand. In any case the light is superb, especially the soft and gentle shapes of various tones created by the winds, I suppose, across the vast foreground of wet sand.

Admittebly Beverly, I never saw such a natural phenomenon, as low tide and the lavel differential's.
I knwo the English channel on both side's are having it remarkebly, and some places in Canada that I know about.
Fine distinction between sea and the wet sand, shining with mild light but in a metalic texture, and the rain falling on far horizon.
well collected the moment.

Warm greetings from southern Spain.

What a beautiful sight, the light in the sea is really cool, and I could see a writer standing here and picturing a thousand dramatic scenes under this sky. The sky is really filled with excellent drama and the clouds are like something from an artists brush. Something different for you as you say, and a beautiful result. Nicely done! The clouds in the topr right look like fingers pointing off accusingly into the distance.
All the best

Bonsoir, chère Bev,
Un moment de bonheur à travers cette composition. Il y a de la poésie, du beau et de l'émotion dans cette réalisation.
Félicitations. C'est de la grande photo !

una foto molto bella che per essere apprezzata deve essere osservata nel grande formato in quanto il formato di anteprima non permette di capire l'ottimo lavoro che hai fatto in sede di ripresa.
Ingrandendola, al contrario, si nota la finezza dei dettagli, la perfezione nel dosaggio della luce e la stessa suggestione del soggetto, particolarmente originale nella sua rigida luminosità.
Ciao e buona serata

Well I like it a lot. I'm drawn to minimalism, though I seldom achieve it myself, I do try! I think if it weren't for that super sky, the photograph wouldn't have enough (conventional) interest, but with it, it's a winner.

I like the overall photo. The reflections of the sun on the wet sand look like the lunar surface. My curiosity will compel me to ask how it would look it B&W. The rays of light coming through the clouds add some interest.

Beverley, a very beautiful moment captured with magnificent light and a superb title!!

Un contre jour très réussi, j'aime la brillance de l'eau et la lumière bien capturer et gérée

Good evening Bev
Opss at first view I believed it was a night capture a romantic one, with full moon
But is a creative, personal one, a silver light on the sand going in a weaving way to the very back
What I like the more is the total absense of objects, only landscape or best seascape
Well done tfs
