Some days, photographically speaking, are extremely frustrating.

It was Camilla's 11th birthday today and we went up to Fleetwood beach to shoot a sequence of shots out of which we intended to construct a montage: similar to the one of Harmony I put up a little while ago.

But the light was flat, and short of post-processing them to within an inch of their lives there wasn't much we could do with them. There were a couple that Camilla particularly liked (that I couldn't process to a standard I was happy with), and one I liked, that she hated, so all in all it wasn't a spectacularly successful trip.

So, here's a shot taken on the same trip that doesn't exactly capture the birthday mood. I do like it, but I'm disappointed to not be able to post a shot of Camilla.

We'll try again when we have better light.
