Late afternoon at Seal Beach, California.
Canon P with Kodak 400 film.
That is a beautiful image, love the colours.
What a wonderful setting for a wedding.
Thanks Dave. Much appreciated.
The colours are indeed very, very nice. Interesting viewpoint too. Are on one of the lifeguard lookouts?
Or did you bring your utility pole with you?
Thanks Pete. I was on the pier. (I leave my utility pole in Los Angeles for when I need it to obscure amazingly interesting things.)
That's the straightest horizon in the history of the universe. A lovely image, which invites you in.
I've trained myself to always strive for level horizons so as to avoid the snooping of those dreadful dreadful people, the Horizon Police, whose Chief Superintendent haunts this forum. (I'm not naming names Pedro!)
Straight it might be, level it ain't! It's on the list, Mr Moore!
(See what you have unleashed, @Rob MacKillop?)
Living at the edge of the world eh? If we believe the earth is not flat, why then bother tilted horizons? Somewhere over there they MUST have tilted horizons, otherwise the world would be flat. Am I missing some point?
Beautiful Brian, an image that transports a person away and above the incidental , shame on them
I believe in your logic Mr. Haveman, but I suspect those dreadful dreadful people, the Horizon Police, whose Chief Superintendent has already stamped his jackboot on this post, though I won't name names (Pedro), would draw a silly distinction between tilted and curved, however illogical that distinction might be to right thinking people like you and I.
lol. Thank you Julian.
Well, that's all a question of scale, isn't it? Curved vs. tilted, I mean. From a very far distance, say: the moon, all horizon appears to be curved. However, on a more human scale, the horizon at the edges of the world seem to be tilted. Let alone the horizon down-under: accurate photography demands pictures with heaven below, and the Planet up....
Why doesn't the Horizon Police understand this simple fact? They live in another world, presenting alternative facts!
Besides, they drive at the left side of the road, which is awkward too!
Fake news! (@Pete Askew )
They ain't dead yet. You preserved them well. "Shooting" your cannon off again. Was it blanks this time?
