This is a shot of Murlough Beach at low tide. The tide here goes out quite a distance leaving a huge expanse of beach which is always interesting and inspirational and is a constant draw for me. The heavily weathered and seaweed covered Groynes provide a perfect lead in to the dark Mourne mountains beyond. Here in the words of the song, the 'Mountains of Mourne' really do 'sweep down to the sea'.
Thank you to everyone who has commented on the photograph, I very much appreciate your input.

une superbe vue sur cette plage de sable.
Les dessins des ondulations sur le sable sont magnifiques; bon POV avec les piquets verdâtres donnant une direction vers la montagne.

I really like the feeling one gets from this photo. What a special shoreline. Technically great, wonderful colors. A rich full sky. Very nice contribution. Thanks!

I like the lead into the scene by the groyns right up to the mountains in the distance.
Amazing patterns in the sand.

I like this seascape/landscape shot, with its low viewpoint and line of mossy posts leading the eye to the mountains. Marvellous pattern in the sand which parallels the clouds somewhat. The mountains, as you say, do seem to rise from the seashore. Strong shadows and a well placed horizon make this one a success.

this is a delight! Beautiful! Love the moss greened groynes and the way they lead the eye to the mountains. The fg textures an artwork.
