This amazing Tim...as always. But I would like to know where you stood to take this shot.
tim hitchins: in me Wellingtons lol, most importantly you have to make sure you know the tide is going out, this stretch of rock goes some half mile out to sea and can come in very quickly. So i was standing on the rock with the water lapping around my feet smile Cheers Ada.

Refreshing is the word that comes to my mind. I love those clouds--they look as if they just lifted right up out of the water.
tim hitchins: cheers Cathy, i wish there had been more of them as the sunlight was so bright it blew most of our pics lol, did learn a few things that day though so it wasn't wastedsmile
Another superb picture Tim
tim hitchins: well thank you kindly Bill from twiddletongrin

I like the silky water look but would prefer a bit more definition on the rocks
tim hitchins: yes Stan your so right, the strong sunlight really messed me up that afternoon lol, and a few beers the night before smile its a lesson learned matey. Most appreciated Stansmile

Brilliant shot, full of drama. I too would have loved more detail in the foreground to reveal more in the metal plates or stumps? But it's still a brilliant shot, Noice one.

All quite on the football front, until things improve smilesmile

fab, fab, fab!

I'd be tempted to try a vertical crop through the image to really use that line of water leading off to the rocks in the middle ground. Just excellent Tim. Really excellent. I feel "awash".

There is a mystical quality to this scene, almost as though lightning will errupt from those fierce clouds and second and sea monsters emerge from the violent depths.

Very powerful, dramatic and as always, beautifully presented Mr H smile
tim hitchins: love your thoughts on this Paul as always of course, had a frustrating few hours on those rocks but didn't come away empty handed at leastsmile cheers Paul.

I like you Tomothy
I like your pictures even more
You spend time at the shore
and update us on the score

Wil this be 'brigg' as ine the sea or as in a jailhouse?

Excellent picture. You would wonder why the brits bolted the rocks down.
tim hitchins: grinlmao Louisgrin

thats so funny matey, yes its found on the east coast, a ridge of rock part man made that seems to cover some sort of pipe line out into the North sea, no idea about the bolts but i thought they might look interesting with some blurry water lapping around them. Cheers Louis and have a nice daysmile
Very artistic sort of shot Tim, taken from the far end of the Brig I assume.

Tre` magnificue
tim hitchins: THANK YOU VERY MUCH Briansmile
another excellent photo Tim, was there something built on that part before, just wondering what that plate was for.
tim hitchins: cheers Derek, i am not sure mate, there is a pipe line that runs along this rock formation which is part man made, must be something to do with the bolts, will investigate this.smile

Mesmerising result. Well done!
tim hitchins: so happy you think so Monikasmile have a nice day.
This is just great, it kinda feels alive.
tim hitchins: cheers Nigel, standing out there on the rocks makes me feel just that m8smile
Likeyed! Tim, this is amazing. 3seconds worked perfectly and the softness of the water against the crispness of objects (like that metal block on the right) is amazing. The post work is brilliant as well.
tim hitchins: so glad you thought so Iainsmile it really was a battle with the low bright sunshine at the time, some cloud cover did the tricksmile most appreciated Iain.
