Around Wells-next-the-Sea 4/5

As you know I like ‘lone tree’ or ‘lone seat’ pictures and when I get to the seaside, which isn’t very often I tend to look out for breakwater shots like this one. There’s nothing original, its been done thousands of times before, but I do rather like this one.

The breakwaters are always uniquely marked with stains and hangers-on, Brian...I like them, and this one is no exception.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray.
They are always worth a shot, Brian. The sea wall I frequent back home is being rebuilt, and 'gentrified'...it needs it of course, but I will miss the old wooden breakwaters, as a kid of 10 I watched a pile-driver putting in the posts, they were about 30ft long, and all you saw above the ground was about 5ft.
Brian Walbey: 'Lone trees' of the seaside as far as I'm concerned. I presume those piles will have rotted away in the sand by now.

Quite right Brian: these things are put here to help the inquisitive photographer
Brian Walbey: 'Lone trees' of the seaside as far as I'm concerned.
This one couldn't be helped I'm sure with that great lead in and prize at the end.
Brian Walbey: It's a subject I like trying when I'm at the coast, unlike you though we are at least 100 miles from it so we aren't there very often.
They are there to be photographed Brian
Brian Walbey: It's difficult not to isn't it.

I do rather like it, too, Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Lisl.
the texture of the old wooden breakwater is superb Brian... i haven't seen any of the other thousand shots of it but i really like yours Brian....petersmile
Brian Walbey: It is a very popular subject, particularly among camera club members.
Even cliches can be interesting, Brian - stick at it!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom.
Well, I like how you've done this, though, Brian. Doesn't seem typical to me.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth. I guess it isn't typical for you and me as we both live a long way away from the coast, you further than me of course.

A splendid composition, Brian. I like the strong diagonal here.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan.
