Dawn on Swanage Bay, Dorset, England, UK.

A lone boat in the bay at dawn. There were loads of boats and I managed to isolate this one (compositionally speaking of course…I didn’t get in and move it or anything!) which helped to create a more minimalist look. I loved the tiny waves lapping on the shore, and I am glad that I managed to get one of them as it sort of, well, collapsed in front of me…..I can’t say that they were breaking, that would be a bit grandiose for these tiny waves, but the gentle noise was very hypnotic and pleasant, and they provide a bit of graphic detail in this exposure.

  • Love it, Tony! Less (color and contrast) is very often more, and here the sequence of bright and dark strips brings a wonderful soft rhythm into the image.

  • You have captured so many layers of shades of blue here Tony… superb composition….peter:)

  • Une superbe composition avec la vague qui roule en avant plan!! minimaliste et magnifique de très belles couleurs

  • Love the simplicity of this composition with so many shades and hues of blue.

  • very nice & amazing!
    so beautiful frame, colors, lights & texture!

  • The simplicity, monochrome tones and strong horizontal lines make this a soothing photo.

  • Nice series from Dorset and the Jurassic coast! I had the opportunity to visit the area just before I left the UK (after a year’s sabbatical) for home but didn’t manage to get that many nice pictures though 🙁

    • Thankyou! It is certainly a very pleasant place to visit….If only to sit and eat tea and cake!

  • a wonderfully balanced compo with perfect symmetry and a very appealing colour scheme !!!

  • A lovely little boat in the sea with gentle waves… It’s a perfect moment…great processing, very nice photo…

  • How beautiful lyrical and poetic! Beautifully seen and exceptionally composed!

  • Thank you for stopping to look at my modest photos. I like a lot this photo almost monochrome and minimalist. An excellent picture.
    Have a good Sunday
