Lake Pier in Black and White

Wednesday 8th June 2016

It was a muggy overcast morning this morning and I decided to take the dogs down to Lake Pier at Hamworthy for our walk. I took a few photos as the calm conditions made Poole Harbour look very appealing. When I got them back, though, there was virtually no colour in them (due to the weather and light) and they looked almost black and white. So I decided to edit them that way. In some I have lowered the clarity, and in others increased it slightly, for effect.

When we arrived there was someone fishing at the end of the pier.

I loved the reflections of the masts in the water in this next shot.

And this boat, which I photograph quite a lot, just looks becalmed.

And finally in the landscape series, one of the pier.

Today Jez coped with the beach far better than she did 3 weeks ago, so we walked along the beach to the steps, up the steps (she needed a bit of a hand with a few of them) and round to the lake. Then we walked back to the carpark and onto the beach by the marine base. Here’s one last photo from today, in colour this time, of Jez cooling down in front of the marine base fencing.

I think you can see from that photo why I said the photos of the sea today looked devoid of colour.

 

A year ago today

We went to Upton Heath where we met lots of our doggie friends. Here Jez gets some loving from Henry.
