Parton beach evening mono

Parton beach in the evening. It was a quick visit after a 12 hour shift as sunset times are late enough but also because I just got my camera back from repair.

Looking very tranquil Alf. Good news on the camera then.

Re: Parton beach evening mono

The foreground rocks and clouds make it work well as a mono shot.

Lovely shot Alf. I like it a lot. It seems that the return trip to Portugal hasn't resulted in the cameras losing their "take me a stunning image" mode!

Glad to see both cameras are home from their wee holiday in Portugal. Hope all is well with them.

Nicely balanced mono Alf, the rocks seem to lead the eye nicely out to the sunset on the horizon.

They've obviously done a fine job on the repair as it's working very well!
