The Jetty.....

In the summer this jetty is a hive of activity. Even though there's a sign stating 'No jumping off Jetty', well.. all the kids do, it's perfect for jumping off and no one ever seems to be around to enforce that rule. In the evening there are usually fishermen sitting here and there along the length of  it. In Winter, this is what it looks like most of the time, I thought that the  sky might be appropriate for Skywatch Friday!

  1. The strong converging lines and the lighter pilings give this a special feeling. The sky is textbook, isn't it?

  4. Grace, this is a stunning photo and is perfect in b/w. The length of the long pier is surpassed only by the enormous sky!

  9. AMAZING sky. Brave decision (and the right one) to go B&W, Grace. I love it.

  10. Yes, I like the way you used the sky as a major compositional element too. And, of course, B&W was a great choice!

  11. It's a hard choice sometimes whether to go the monochrome way, but it does create a bit of drama. I appreciate your comment John, you and your team go black and white all the way and it does inspire me and others I'm sure to experiment.
