Quiet evening in Blackpool

over Blackpool's North Pier
out of clouds
the sun's rays spread -
two seagulls perch
on the promenade guard rail
as a third flies over.

Taking a look see after a long long time and the seaside is a topic I've never seen from you before this and it is delightful. Generally I'm very thankful I live not far from the coast. It is always a tonic. And has so much scope for interesting photography. By others mainly.

Lovely colours in this shots and great fence. Have a great weekend. Can you make your blog a 'robot' free one. It is very difficult to read these numbers especially on an mini Ipad!
