Mid-Week Monochrome – MWM -14- Low Tide

  For this week's challenge, I thought I would process another boat image, taken at Hayling Island in Hampshire.  So for the challenge this week, it is anything to do with tides... it could be a photograph of high tide or low tide.  It really doesn't matter, crashing waves are an excellent choice for depicting … Continue reading Mid-Week Monochrome – MWM -14- Low Tide
