Experimenting on the beach

My Sony phone has a backlight option on its camera, which allows photos taken pointing towards the sun to be more than a blur. the photo I have chosen for this week was taken from a crouching position, looking towards the in-coming tide and the low autumn sunshine. The textures of the sand on the beach and the reflections in the pool of water add to the experimental nature of this composition.

Layers on land, sea and sky

The photo I have chosen for this challenge from the Daily Post about layers of texture is a very recent one. There were many different sorts of clouds that day. Clouds are three-dimensional consisting of droplets of moisture in irregular layers.

The tide was out, so that layers could be seen: deep water, shallow water, wet sand, shingle, concrete.

In the distance there is a hill, which has more layers.

Skyscape collage

This week the  photo challenge from the Daily Post is Collage.

I have collected together some of my skyscapes from 2017 in West Cumbria.  All except two are sunsets. The other two are perhaps of more interest to sky-watchers. The supermoon was taken in the morning. The halo has already appeared on Twitter.
