Spring on the beach

Spring on the beach

I had intended to post more from the coast around the Tees mouth, but this is from further south. Bridlington in fact.



  1. I love mist as a time to shoot but our Atlantic climate here, and our altitude, means that we only get about two days a year when we have mist or fog. This shot makes the most of the conditions and catches the subtlety of the light and colouring very well – particularly those two in the foreground. The figures behind become almost like an installation art piece.

  2. Yes, the colours and light on the two diggers is quite striking. I love the doubt as to where the sea actually is……the two slightly larger figures in the centre appear to be looking directly away from us, and initially they led me to imagine the sea was, as it were, a horizongtal strip across the centre of the image. But there is something of a procession of figures left to right, so perhaps the sea is off to the right. I enjoyed this image a lot

  3. I love the doubt as to where the sea actually is…… It’s behind you :-)

    The fog removes enough detail from those in the background to turn them into Antony Gormley men sculptures…………….another place.

  4. Another winner here Chris. I love the ghosts walking around behind the ‘diggers’. I’m a sucker for this sort of beach shot, and the mist makes it much stronger. I always find myself thinking of some of the painters of market scenes, who presented a picture of live lived, with bustle and hustle throughout the canvas, and how hard it is to actually give some sense of that in a photographic frame. Pulling sufficient order out of disorder, without sterilising it is a difficult task, and you’ve done well here.
