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.

Glowing colours

Lines from a very popular hymn are,

He made their glowing colours,
He made their tiny wings.

The preceding lines are about flowers and birds. The lines came into my head as I was looking for a photo to use for the Glow photo challenge from the Daily Post. I noticed that red admiral butterflies are colourful and have tiny wings! They were enjoying the Michaelmas daisies.

The hymn is All things bright and beautiful. (Words by Cecil Frances Alexander)
