Hendon Beach December 2016 - Robin Taylor Photography

Hendon Beach

    I had the opportunity to go to Hendon Beach and take some shots.

    The day had seen very little light, one of those dreary winter days that the Scots have their own word for that the English don't - `Dreich` and that light was now fading into twilight when I arrived. In spite of this the tide had just turned from its highest point of the day, so I hoped I could get some nice images of the waves blurring. 

    The concrete groynes on this beach are perhaps not the most photogenic of architecture but I think their weathered concrete and rusted metal pilings gives a great contrast against the tide.

    I managed to get 3 or 4 images before the light faded totally. The pictures I'd taken had been with the intention of converting to black and white but I think I prefer the muted colours.
