An early Mulgrave outing

With the hawthorns well gone and the jubilee day creating an extra days holiday I decided to spend it with an early morning outing to a favourite location.

Arriving around 8 I was eager to get going and revisited a favourite subject - the remains of an old boat.

A pig to focus, but I think I made all the right compromises.

I decided to have a go at one of the huts that has been catching my attention for some time.

A straightforward image but a fun one. At this stage with the tide heading for fully out, I started to head down towards the beach when I noticed a patch of pealing wood I couldn't quite resist.

On the beach I headed for the cave and made an image I have looked at a few times during the winter but rejected - for some reason, the stains are better at this time of the year.

Thinking it was time to head back, I decided to walk out to the tide edge and just as I was walking back, noticed a surprising series of sand patterns. Then a strange configuration of rocks attracted my attention and I realised that I must be looking at some remnant of industrial archeology. I had to set the image up, using a polariser to take out the reflections of the grey sky above.

I must have nearly 40 images of Mulgrave now - definitely heading towards book territory I think....
