More boring Pete Pictures

You may discern a theme here. OK, I admit, these are all taken from our new perch on the south coast. I'm still besotted by the sea. "Look, there's a wave. Look, there's another wave"

Here's the view on a nice day.



And here's the view with a fog bank.



If the conditions are right, Mudeford develops more and more beach huts.



ANd finally, a bog standard sunset.




Many of these are taken with my Panasonic 100-300 lens. I agree with the reviews, you need to keep it shorter than 200 to 250mm to get best sharpness

Looks like you found a nice perch Pete. Great views whatever the weather.

Those beach huts on Mudeford Spit cost a fortune. Here's one for 300K:

Re: More boring Pete Pictures

Pete I have lived by the sea all my life and I am still besotted by it.


That first shot is great and the other go nicely with it.

Re: More boring Pete Pictures

The council takes quite a high percentage of the sale price. So all of the money does not go to the vendor.
