    Balcary Bay 2

    One more from my week's holiday/vacation in south west Scotland. This one is the pair of this one.

    Not sure if these poles are for holding nets in order to catch fish coming into the bay, or for hanging nets to dry them. I'm sure someone can tell us.

    As always, your comments are welcome.

    Whatever their use, the poles make an interesting image.

    Nice image. I haven't the foggiest what the poles may be used for. Your photographs make me consider monochrome with all the tones it allows.

    As always a very well done b&w. I have been experimenting a bit in that direction too but not making much headway.

    The light shining on the top of the poles is quite magical, they stand out wonderfully against the dark, broody sky.

    Thanks for your comments, folks.

    I saw these poles from several hundred yards away and thought there must be an image in them. So having walked across the beach, the light then played its part and gave me the opportunity for this.

    I liked what was happening on the beach itself, with all the little pools of water on the sand.

    Hi Donald,

    the composition is very powerful with the poles in magic sunlight, making them to an eye catcher. Whatever the poles are meant for ... at least for interesting pictures

    It seems poles were lighted by source which is in side of photographer but I did not see their shadow.

    The poles were, in fact, bleached white by years of weather on those parts that are above the high tide mark. So, although the light source i.e. sun) was, as Ross says, coming from behind and right, it was diffuse and not direct sunlight, hence the absence of shadows.
