Beach Walkers by maggiemae

Beach Walkers

Leaving Raglan behind after a futile attempt to try and find the fish and chip shop at the end of the little pier that Pat ( @happypat ) told us about, we headed south. Through narrow gorges, beside green hills, through a tunnel into the seascape north of New Plymouth.
Three Good Things:
1. Power and a good internet connection here!
2. We front on to the beach where the waves thunder in - they thundered all night, actually!
3. Remembering to put my shoulders back and head up more often.
Beautiful place fot a walk

Oh this is lovely, especially that little strip of water leading to the sea

A lovely part of the coastline. The west coast is a bit different to what you are used to. I love the silhouettes of all the people.

This is beautiful, the mountains in the distance, the people walking, the surf, this photo has it all!
April 21st, 2018  
What a great view. I like the far mountains too.
April 21st, 2018  
@sailingmusic Thanks Myrna - this mountains are called the White Cliffs which I meant to point out but didn't!

very nice seascape, very inviting

@dide I had to rest my camera on a post to try for good focus here!
April 22nd, 2018  
@onewing I couldn't get down to the beach easily, Babs - there had been some storm damage and the trail was closed. However we enjoyed seeing all the walkers who managed to get down!

@beryl It was foggy/misty - may have been the wind which you can't do much about!
April 22nd, 2018  
@grammyn ...and for stopping that hunched look that old people develop!
April 22nd, 2018  
@maggiemae of course there is that too, but you are much too young to worry about that yet!!
April 22nd, 2018  
I think photography makes us even more likely to lean forward and hunch down

@jgpittenger At various times, you are so right, Jane!

Beautiful capture, from the grassy foreground, the beach walkers, across the waves to the gorgeous cliffs in the distance..Big Fav

Gorgeous land/seascape! I love the color tones.
April 22nd, 2018  
Lovely shot of the silhouettes in the foreground and the light on the distant 'White Cliff's'..
April 22nd, 2018  
I think I feel the scent of water ..... beautiful shot with great mood
April 22nd, 2018  
a beautiful scene
April 22nd, 2018  
I love the slightly dreamy feel to this. Great composition.
April 22nd, 2018  
@olenadole The sea smells are always the best - the freshest and the most effective!
April 22nd, 2018  
love it - fav
April 22nd, 2018  
Superb capture...love the light and sense of scale
April 22nd, 2018  
FAV!
April 22nd, 2018  
Lovely capture!
April 22nd, 2018  
Lovely and atmospheric
April 22nd, 2018  
Super shot, so windswept and lovely.
April 22nd, 2018  
This is really stunning. An instant fav.

@graemestevens This is the only photo that I might like your input to turn it B&W?
April 23rd, 2018  
@maggiemae Sorry, I missed this one. It should work well as a B&W - really push the Clarity up, shadows down and whites up, blacks down a bit...play with those sliders. Personally I like a slight "harsher" look to my B&W's...but I reckon this one would work so well as a mono
April 23rd, 2018  
@graemestevens Might try all those options, thanks Graeme. Only allowed one per day but I do have another album!
April 23rd, 2018  
@graemestevens Just had a go and I like it.... on my other album!

Gorgeous image!
April 23rd, 2018  
Oh dear, I should have given better directions maggie, never mind another time maybe! Loving this picture but will go over to the black & white & compare but I'm always a colour oerson. #3GT is always on my list but forget!
April 23rd, 2018  
@happypat Didn't need fish and chips anyway, Pat! It was about 11am.
April 23rd, 2018  
@maggiemae It's a lovely place to visit without the fish & Chips maggie. A beautiful view if the bay & two lovely shops plus the fish shop also sold different fish to buy such as smoked salmon, crabs etc! Another time!
April 23rd, 2018  
@happypat Oh, didn't see anything like that - went past "The Wharf' restaurant but no further! We will be back though!
April 23rd, 2018  
I liked this a lot when I saw it pop up yesterday but was too tired to do any more commenting. Now that I have seen your black and white version, I prefer that, but this is excellent too.
April 24th, 2018  
Great scene xx
