SOMERSET LEVELS 156 – ALONG THE PROMENADE AT BURNHAM-ON-SEA (MONO)

A foggy morning on the seafront at Burnham-On-Sea; 14 Mar 2014.

Not sure if I was aware of them at the time, but I like – maybe “value” is a better word – the presence of the strolling couple at lower left.  To me they help the composition.

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.

    They’re almost missed – but that couple do add a third point of interest, and make a valid contribution, Adrian. A very grey start of to the day, by the look of it

      Overdark of course, but it was a grey morning, and looking over the seawall, to the left of the couple, the endless Bristol Channel mud blended up into the overcast – when Weston or Burnham do bleak, they really do bleak! Thanks for your thoughts, Andy. Adrian

  3. What a great atmospheric shot! I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned before, but many years ago while I was at uni I had a boyfriend who came from Highbridge and so many Friday nights during the summer break where spent drinking at The Clarence Hotel. Is it still there? The cycle back to Highbridge was always very wobbly 🙂

      Yes, the Clarence Hotel is still there – except its the ROYAL Clarence Hotel!!! – and bills itself as the only hotel on the seafront. I used to tell friends that I’m taking my wife for a day out in Highbridge! 🙂 But we like Burnham, cheap and cheerful, quiet, one or two reasonable places to eat – and despite a million warning notices, people and vehicles still going far too far down the beach and having to be rescued (by hovercraft these days!) from all that glutinous mud!

      And I remember wobbly bike rides home too – including three of us, out of our minds on cider, spreading ourselves gracefully and flat across a main road – good job there wasn’t so much traffic about then! A 🙂
