This is what I imagine a moonscape to be (not all those hard outlines we do get). It's lovely.

I agree, this has a definite otherwordly edge to it. It's fantastic, very dramatic.
tim hitchins: thank you very much Jessiesmile
This series on Spurn Point is wonderful, with yesterday's shot being the best for me. All very dramatic and stirring.

We used to go to Spurn Point a lot, back in the early 60's when we were stationed at RAF Patrington (now closed) and lived at Withernsea.
tim hitchins: ha Withernsea Sheila, well looking at it on Sat i doubt anything has changed since you left, not very busy for such a lovely day i can tell you. Passed through Patrington too which looked like a very nice peaceful village, sort of place i feel you might miss? Most appreciated Sheila.

This is a good one Tim, a little different and has great dramatic tension. Almost wish I didn't know the explanation for the circle of bolts - they look fantastic and give the image its "edge".

simply breathtaking

This is like the bow end of the Titanic rising up out of the sea.
tim hitchins: ha now that would be something Chad smile cheers buddie.
An extraordinary image. I don't know what I'm looking at... at one glance it is a sinking ship, then a stone circle, then a boulder from space. Whatever it is, it's very stiking.
tim hitchins: its a gun emplacement Ian just off Spurn Point and worth a visit for sure, most appreciated m8smile
impresive. wonderful shot!
tim hitchins: thank you very much Emanuelsmile

Hey Tim, as hard as it was to find a fav, I'll have to say this ranks up there with one of my fav. The mood is so eerie...the scene to me is so reminiscent of the titanic as it is slowly going down it. Well executed shot!
tim hitchins: thank you very much Loretta and have a nice daysmile
