The Behindness Of Things 2/5

A short series taken from behind the participants during our recent week in North Wales.

 

Another shot, like yesterdays taken at Criccieth.  This couple were quite happy to sit in the wind and watch the waves, whipped up a bit by the wind, breaking over the sandy beach at this resort.

Nature does some of its best stuff in these conditions.

Another excellent shot, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Ray.

Well it's certainly dramatic alright Brian
Brian Walbey: Not the sea or weather for paddling Chris for sure.
You wouldn't wear shorts on a day like this in the middle of Birmingham!
Brian Walbey: There's always one who has to brave the elements Bill.
Whatever the weather, just watching the waves can have a hynotic effect.
Brian Walbey: I know what you mean Sheila.
Who wouldn`t be! The sea is infinately watchable, whatever the weather. Love this point of view, it feels so intimate. (:o)
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Rosalyn.
Another great capture Brian. I like the atmosphere!
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Richard.
Interesting how this chap sits vertically despite the sloping bench.
Brian Walbey: Perhaps he has a natural bent to the right Chad smile

No matter the weather the sea is always good to watch
Brian Walbey: No two waves are ever quite the same are they vintage, interesting to watch as you say.
They better hang on to that bench or they will slide out of frame wink
Brian Walbey: Lol. Actually the bench is on a hill Marion. I got the image up in CS3 with the grid on and the horizon top right is spot on horizontal and the fence pillars are are likewise vertical.
Yes it is a bit wonky Brian :O)
Now I bet like us all when on holiday they're thinking "damn the bloody weather we going to sit and watch the waves" and then "and Im gonna wear me shorts too"
A good second shot but does need leveling up.
Brian Walbey: Actually george following Marions comment I have pulled this up in CS3 with the grid and the horizon, top right, is spot on horizontal and the fence pillers are spot on vertical, the seat is actually on a hill. Anyway thanks for your comment, as you say there is always one to buck the trend.
True Brits making the most of it. I love the coast.
Brian Walbey: We put up with almost any weather don't we John, it comes from living inland I suppose and only seeing the sea on a few occasions a year.

Brian Walbey: Thanks Shaun.

Yes, I were happy too, the monotonous sounds of the sea is so calming and a rough wind blowing through the hairs and around the face so refreshing- nothing can beat such a stay at the sea -it seems to be rather warm, the lady doesn't wear socks or leggings.
Brian Walbey: The man has shorts on also Philine, not the best of clothes for that particular day.

Both in shorts, very keen indeed. Looks a bit cold for me in shorts here Brian.
Brian Walbey: Too cold for me to be in shorts for sure Scotia.
another nice shot of the beach, down to the beach today with the dog, great place, nice shot
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Derek.
Sitting watching the sea is a totally absorbing pastime, I love to do it.

But, shorts in that weather? Braver than me!
Brian Walbey: It was a bit too cold and windy for shorts that day Ellie, they must have been hardy souls.
Looks like it might of been cold a little, they are both wearing a sweather. The waves are fabulous! Excellent capture overall! wink
Brian Walbey: Yes it was blowing quite a strong wind and was very dull. This resort is lovely in the sunshine though, we had a week there a few years ago and really enjoyed it, ideal for those of us of more advancing years I think my wife and I would say.
