January CMMC Colour white

Cee Neuner’s Midweek Madness Challenge (CMMC) this week is for the colour white.
On Saturday afternoon the wind was whipping up the waves into a meringue-coloured mass. I took a series of photos, but have chosen just one to illustrate how white the sea can be on a sunny, windy day.

Blu sky with white clods and a tinge of orange towards the sun (not pictured). Most of the sea is white, but greyish-blue towards the horizon. White waves are breaking in a line towards a ramp and groynes. There are cliffs in the distance and the outline of Black Combe is just visible.

June CMMC challenge – pick a topic

Cee Neuner’s photo from which she asks participants to pick a topic for Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge (CMMC) is of the Oregon coast.

As we are eight hours ahead of the west coast of the USA, her challenges appear late in the afternoon or early in the evening UK time. Today has been wet until this evening, when I took my camera for a walk to the beach after looking at Cee’s photo. My two photos have rocks and sea rather than ocean.

The Isle of Man is just visible on the horizon of my first photo. It is in the Irish Sea between England and Ireland.

Breakwaters are also known as groynes.
