Hastings

We were back at the beach today in a different part of the country. We visited our friends in Hastings and as it was such a beautiful sunny day I got lots of shadow photos for Shadowshot Sunday. Visit Hey Harriet here for lots more!

This is one of the fishing boats that had just landed. They head full speed for the beach, go up onto the shingle a little way and then are winched in. It is most exciting to watch!

This is all of us on the windy end of the promenade-we wanted to throw stones into the sea.


This is a very scary looking ride which stronger stomached people than me were enduring.

These are wonderful, but I have to say I love the last one with it's sherbet colors - beautiful!

I too love the people on the edge...a longing to be near the sea perhaps.

I'm trying to pick a fave but I love each one for different reasons. I really enjoyed how the sequence went from quiet b&w through to loud in-your-face colour! A super set of shadows :)

Looks like a fun day at the beach:)It would be cool to watch the boats beaching themselves like that. Nice shots!!

Great shots Sarah. It's a long time since I had an English day out at the seaside but your postings brought back lots of memeories. I thought the fist picture with the boat on the ocean was beautifully composed...very atmospheric.

That would be eciting to see the boat racing in to be winched. Great shots.

I love them all! I do have a "thing" about water and reflections/shadows, but wonderful colors in the last one is really cool! Happy SSS!

Hi, Sarah! I would have gone on that ride! Looks like fun! :-)

Liz said...

Great pictures Sarah! Now I want to go to the beach...

The shadow shot is like something I would expect to see in a movie. The last colourful shot is fun! I would have to sit that ride out with you, however, Sarah. Got plenty of that as a kid...

I love visiting the English seaside with you.
Looks pretty chilly to me - but is still chilly in NY too.
Super pictures.
ps the last photo on my Sunday post was between two tall buildings near 24th St. outside the back of our apartment.
Happy week.

Looks as though you've had a great time away. Seems as though you're making the most of the Easter break. You've done some travelling!
What an unusual shot of the row of shadow people looking over the edge.

Great shadow shots! And a fun day too. Can't beat that.
