photoblog image Keyhaven

Keyhaven


A blustery day at Keyhaven, with Hurst Castle (about a mile away) and the Isle of Wight (even further away) in the background.

This picture was taken the same day as those from Lyndhurst, it was damp and hazy.

Please try clicking the white background and see if you think it makes a difference to the picture.

Keyhaven is - here -

I apologise for not being around very much at the moment, I'll do my best to catch up with replying to your kind comments when I can, but I'd much prefer to spend the time looking at lovely pictures.

The boats in the foreground would make a good image on their own Ellie. Hurst castle looks very flat, for want of a better word, like the lighthouse though. Well seen.
EJWilkins: Yes, it does look flat, probably because there was nothing shining on it and there was a haze between me and the castle - it only lifts on very sunny days.

That looks a little desolate, but I am sure a bit of sunshine brings the landscape alive. The joys of winter in Europe!

Thanks for your map, I am always anxious where the pictures are taken...you did a very nice job, the boats are just waiting for a nice ride on the water...and Martin is so right, a little sun makes the difference smile
Lovely capture, Ellie. I bet you did a closer shot of those boats, too. (:o)

Nice capture Ellie. I honestly never notice if people reply to my comment or not. Life is too short to worry about that.

Looks like a nice place to visit no matter what the weather.
I always prefer the black background.

I can feel the cold here. Chillllly.Deserted for the winter.
EJWilkins: It was chilly, and wet too - with both spray and rain, which is why the land in the distance is so unclear.
Nice shot Ellie. Don't worry about replies

Really like the muddy foreshore, here, Ellie...and the red boat with its companion.

The different backgrounds do affect the image but both work - think I prefer white today smile

Just how I feel re. viewing/commenting/replying.
EJWilkins: There aren't enough hours in the day, and I need to reclaim my mornings! *blush* I hate mornings and staying up late doesn't improve things.
I'm never entirely sure about the black or white backgrounds, they give pictures completely different feels, don't they?

I love the contrasts between the colours, boat on the water and the two ones who are not ... The composition is very poetic ...

I like the splashes of colour from the boats.
I will be down the road from here at the weekend, as I'm going back down to Pompey.
Have a good one.
EJWilkins: Darn it, only just read your comment. Next time you're down this way perhaps?
Shorelines are full of ghosts and histories.
It's a bit desolate but a great seascape !!
Ellie, I like this one landscape that you have caught. Personally, I believe that it had eliminated the superior part and I had had left with the image of the solitary boats in the sand! wink
