I mentioned James Bartholomew's paintings the other evening, and linked to one of his seascapes. What I particularly liked about his work was the sense of movement they conveyed. Take this one, for example – it contains sharp, crisp details, but also the blur of a sea in violent motion. Photographically, this would be difficult to replicate (either by combining exposures or during post-production), but it did get me thinking about how I might portray the seascapes around Blackpool.

Anyway, tonight's effort is the result of those musings: a bit softer than normal, more about mood than detail.

Let me know what you think.

And finally, I don't intend to post the original of every shot I put up, but it seems to have become a bit of a habit recently:
