5 in 5 by the beach

I was excited to see the launch of a local 3 day artwalk with installations by the sea and was sure this would provide excellent images for my September 5 in 5. I set off with my camera and the map

but sadly it was underwhelming


I think the pieces were just too small – I think this piece either needed enough of these pots to cover the top or have a piece that is massively bigger.  Hopefully they will evolve for next year.

So I was left without a subject for 5 in 5 but the light over the water was interesting and there were only a few people around so I easily captured some good images of a mostly empty non-summer beach then had to choose my favourite 5 -


an empty beach except for 2 boys playing with the tide under looming clouds


a greyhound checking for her person


a woman either enjoying some thinking time with her guitar – or practicing where no one can hear


reflections as the wave gathers


an hypnotic horizon

Thanks to Sandie for her 5 in 5 meme – a lovely monthly prompt to take photos for 5 minutes then choose the best 5 to share.

The colours are beautiful: it looks very peaceful

What a disappointment that the art trail was so insignificant. But you made up for it with these stunning beach shots. It looks beautiful, how lucky to live somewhere with such a stunning coast.
Hopefully the art trail will gain momentum for next year. Meantime thank you for taking part and so looking forward to meeting up with you soon in person 💃

Your photos are full of atmosphere, Helena: a real end-of-summer elegaic quality. I especially like your woman and guitar ...

All great photos and mood these photos invoke - pensive.
