My Paradise…

This shot is a dusk shot looking towards mountains in Albania. I am on the Macedonian side of Lake Ohrid. I made this trip a few years ago, but thought I’d post it here for the Photofriday challenge, which this week is ‘paradise’.

For me, this image represents a kind of paradise as I was on a cycle touring trip around Europe, and I love cycletouring. This is a photograph looking across to Albania into the mountains where I would be cycling through over the following days. It’s these moments when I rest in a town or village that I look forward to more cycling adventures to come…..

I have a few more images from this evening here

Abandoned old barge, Norfolk coastline, Norfolk, England, UK Abandoned boat, North Norfolk coastline, England, UK

I walked past this old boat one evening, and had to photograph it!! I don’t know what the history of this boat is, but it’s been out of service for quite some time!!

It was also a beautiful, calm summers evening too, when I tool this, with wonderful, subtle skies and the lowering sun.

The boat is situated on salt marshes, which fills with seawater during high tide. There are many moored boats along the coastline both in service, as well as these old abandoned jobbies. They all make great photographic subjects….

Chesil beach

A peaceful evening at Chesil beach…There have been svere storms here recently…but all is calm now!

Just a simple composition with the buildings on the horizon providing some scale. Chesil beach is a strange formation as it is a beach that has a lagoon behind it so it is a beach surrounded by water!

Anyway, it was a peaceful evening with lovely skies….and that is all that mattered to me!
