Lowry People and Dogs on the East Coast by phil_howcroft

Lowry People and Dogs on the East Coast

My wife, Ruby our whippet and I, went to Skegness for the day on New Years Eve.

The traffic was great, no one on the roads , we did the journey in less than two hours and were parked up on the sea front by 10 a.m.

It was a beautiful day, the sun shone, the sea breeze was gentle and we walked over 11 miles. We had a picnic on the terrace of a "closed for winter" bar.

I took my Sony A6000 and kit lens and captured a few half decent pictures.

I think the people and dogs in this photo look like those drawn by LS Lowry.

As the sun started to drop we made our way back to Nottingham and were home by tea time to see in the New Year with Craig David and Jules Holland !

Happy New Year to all my 365 friends.

Fabulous composition to mark the last day of 2019 - Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! Great composition - love the depth from the rocks in the foreground to the windmills in the background and everything in between.

Yes, Lowryesque but also a brilliant shot in its own right Phil. I just love it - fav!

Very nice shot, Phil. The turbines spoil a bit the view but we have to accept that.

Love the horizon. Happy new year. Fav

Sounds like an idyllic way to spend the last day of the year Phil. This shot works so well with all its different layers of interest - including those compliant people and dogs walking through the frame with such distinct shapes in their action.

Love this - the little figures and the reflections of the wind farm are great.

@sangwann thanks Dione, I quite like the turbines, I think they are modern day wind mills and beautiful structures

@casablanca Casa' I bet Skeggy is still as "bracing" and as , how can we say politely "a typical Brit holiday resort"
