Mooring lines on the beach in St Ives harbour, Cornwall;  27 Apr 2006.

This picture was  taken looking down onto the beach from West Pier.  It might look good in mono, but I think that the subtle colours of the sand and the seawater add something to this Minimalist shot.

Leica Minilux; Fuji Provia 400 colour slide; rotated 90 degrees clockwise.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    I agree with you about the subtle colours – And I like that you’ve rotated it. I like this a lot, Adrian. Well seen!!

    Rotation makes it something different altogether. An abstract one.

  3. A little bit of East Asian script running down the side of this wouldn’t surprise me. This is delightful!

    When I saw that you’re back with the beach themes, I hoped for another rotation–and you don’t disappoint! I agree wtih M that the subtle, pastel hues are well worth preserving. Another fine abstract.

      Thank you very much, Gary – well, you know what I’m like with rotations – incurable, haha!!! And, yes, the mono version is certainly inferior. Hope you’re fine and well, my friend! Adrian 🙂

    I love everything about this one. The colours are superb – I’m pleased you decided to leave them and not change to monochrome.

    Oh yes this rotation works very well Adrian and I agree that leaving this subtle colour in works .
