The Dunes – East Head, West Sussex
I have said it before, and I’ll say it again, but East Head on the West Sussex coast must be one of my favourite places. I am so fortunate to live nearby and I try not to take it for granted, which would be a very easy thing to do.
Strangely I rarely visit this location specifically to take photographs, as it is really dog walking territory. As a result most of my images taken here are opportunistic, and are often captured on my iPhone. This shot is just such an example. The clouds were wonderful and the sun lit the dunes in the foreground. The sands were rippled from the wind and luckily were pure; not a paw print in sight! The grasses too were bending in the wind and a lone figure below the patch of blue sky completes the scene. How lucky I am to have such a beautiful place on my doorstep.

Beautiful composition, bet it would also make for an outstanding monochrome image.
Thanks very much. I will try a mono conversion – I agree , it should convert well.
Lovely composition Alan and in colour …..it works so well with such a limited colour palette. I agree with the comment about a mono conversion. Have a great week.
Thanks James. I hope you have a good week too.
Great image, have you ever thought about doing it in Black & White?
Thank you. Others have said the same, so I will post a mono conversion later today.
I’m looking forward to seeing it, I think the mono version will be an even stronger (it is already a very strong image) image.
My proclivities are toward Black & White.
