Turnstone on the harbour wall at St Ives, Cornwall; 10 Oct 2013.

The backdrop is the sea at St Ives which, for one more used to the muddy waters of the Severn Estuary, has the colour of a precious jewel!

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.

    Speedy little things they are normally, this one appears to have a short snooze , allowing you to take its portrait so beautifully.

    Ha ha yes, the Severn Estuary… Where only visitors go into the waters. :-D.

This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
