You’d think that the boardwalk part of this picture would be a waste of space, taking away from the picture. Whilst it doesn’t add a massive amount it is a part of the picture. As is the huge bank of cloud that was delivering some relatively gentle rain over Bembridge on the Isle of Wight – I knew that, because my friend who was managing the radio net (the #Breakfastclub – it was 6:15AM, so not surprising that he was still in bed, listening to the rain). When I get home after my morning walk, I take a look at my pictures, every so often, one grabs you, and I allow my self to say I like that one. Well, I like this one – can’t tell you why though.
Normally, in the mornings I try to get the sun behind the Spinnaker. I was trying to get the Wight Link Catamaran which is just visible in front of the lipstick building. This is another picture that pleases me. I’m doing well today.
I went for my lunchtime walk today. I have routinely been walking down Weevil Lane, around the building at the far end of the Forton Lake Bridge. Today, I wanted to walk to the waterfront, it’s nice to see it at different times of the day.
The walk was OK, the waterfront to be honest was at it’s best. It’s only a short stretch but it was sunny and warm with practically no wind, there were seats to relax (I didn’t), and the prom, for a stroll. The water in the harbour was calm. The Victoria of Wight was coming in through the harbour entrance, and there were several small boats moving along the small boat channel. It was just a really lovely scene. I could quite understand why and how someone would just want to sit and take in the scene. Lovely.
