A Weekend Away ….. Recharging The batteries

I’ve just got back from a weekend in Dawlish Warren, a chance to recharge my very depleted batteries, eat and drink all the wrong things and embrace the sound and smell of the sea ….. I took a few pictures trying to be all arty-farty ….. but I’m a bit disappointed by the results …. but I thought I would share them with you anyway …..

As I took this picture of some pebbles on the beach  I noticed a “heart shaped” one in the bottom right of the shot ….

That beach hut photo could be a poster - it's so colorful and I love the way you caught the arc of their placement. The sign made me laugh, too. Poor Gerald needs the services of a proper editor before his signs go to print. LOL

I like your photos, they are pretty. I think what is disappointing you with them, is because it looks like a bright day, it confuses your camera and leaves your sky overexposed, giving a white sky instead of a blue one.

I hope you dont mind, but I liked your first image, so tweaked the sky back in and made the heart rock a little more focused. Here is a link to it with sky, to see if it pleases you anymore.

If you want sky adding to any others let me know and I can do that for you.
