Title • tide down too

Thanks to Roy's comment on yesterday's entry I now know (as with yesterday's shot) that this is a part of St. Anne's Pier that burnt down – reducing its overall length from 914' to 600'.

I also have another shot of this structure that I may well put up tomorrow. I'm pretty pleased with it, but on reflection I think the composition could have been a bit better so I may reshoot it tomorrow. That said, if it's as windy as it was today I probably won't bother – as I walked along the beach today the wind was so strong it felt as though it would take my legs out from under me. And interestingly, when we first moved here, I found the sea winds quite difficult to deal with for any length of time. Inland the wind seems much less constant – a gust, a lull, another gust, and so on – but when it's windy on the beach it's continuous. Having got used to it though I find it kind of reassuring – something to escape into perhaps.

Anyway, enough rambling – tell me what you think about this one. I like it.

Oh, and this one, IMO, looks better with the dark theme.
