Seascape

IMG_8250Seascapes are often minimalist ‘scapes – just the sea, the sky and a strand of land with no competing objects. But Seascapes are also so much more than that: giant vistas, atmospheric, evidence of the power of the sea in a storm; and they offer grandstand views of the weather – whether it is passing by or approaching.

Many of us feel drawn to the sea. One of the downsides of living inland for the past forty years or so was always that we were situated just about the furthest you could be from the sea in the UK in any direction you cared to think of. That has now changed and in the space of a couple of months we have visited the sea five times.

This image was taken from outside the East Beach Café at Littlehampton. Plenty of ‘weather’ was happening far out to sea but little of it came our way that afternoon.

About LensScaper

Hi - I'm a UK-based photographer who started out 45+ years ago as a lover of landscapes, inspired by my love of outdoor pursuits: skiing, walking and climbing. Now retired, I seldom leave home without a camera and I find images in unexpected places and from different genres. I work on the premise that Photography is Art and that creativity is dependent on the cultivation of 'A Seeing Eye'. I'm not averse to manipulating images to produce derivatives that may sometimes be far removed from the original.

  1. I like this a lot, Andy. It would have been a good photograph even without the weather happening out at sea, but with it: Wow!

    The black and white’s a perfect treatment for this one. I suspect it heightens the power of those five horizontal bands — each with a different texture. It’s a wonderfully interesting photo.

      Thanks Linda. It was only when I processed this using Silver Efex – a Nik plug-in – that I got the full power and presence of those bands hovering above the horizon.

    I just love watching showers chase across a seascape. This is a fine example Andy!

    Love images that show storms out to sea. Glad you have easier access to the water than you did.
