I was just browsing through some old images that I had on Flickr, and came across this one, which I have always quite liked.
I took it back in late October 2008 when Dee and I were visiting friends in Kent, It was taken at Tankerton, near Whitstable. At the time that I spotted the photo and took it, I was fairly pleased with it. I liked the repetition of the shadows, running in diagonally from the bottom left. I thought that the perspective, with the chalets running away to a ‘disappearing point’ was pretty good as well. Later someone pointed out that the clouds sort of mirrored the shadows as well, so all in all, I thought it was worth a stab at putting it into a competition at the local Camera Club. I think that the judge thought it ‘not too bad’, but he wasn’t at all happy with the colour of the grass, thinking it over saturated. My print might not have been quite like this image, but it was pretty close. I think that the colour was actually pretty realistic, because the low afternoon sun did impart a quite yellow hue to the sunlight areas. Maybe I should go back to B&W photography!
Or maybe not!
