Thread: How wonderful it is...

    How wonderful it is...

    How wonderful it is to wander along the coastal path of Pembrokeshire in West Wales on a Friday, when everyone is working... and then you come across beautiful wild flowers such as these. Sea Pinks, or Thrift, as they are known. Life can be so hard...

    Shot with a Panasonic G1.

    Does anybody else remember when these appeared on the reverse side of the old UK 3 penny coin. I think it was 12 sided, although I haven't seen one for a while.

    Love the sparkle of the sea in the background and that slight backlighting on the stems. I can smell that sea air.

    That is absolutely beautiful, Rob. I've missed your images the past few weeks.

    Inspiring shot. Unfortunately the terminology may be a trifle 'hackneyed' by much use, but it is a " beautiful photo," in the true sense of the phrase. Thanks for sharing it.

    HA! We're not that naive! That could kill a person and you seem quite alive after your day. This reminds me of that scene in "The Secret of Roan Inish" when Fiona is sleeping in the field of flowers on the hill by the sea (different flower - same effect.) It's such a light, bright and fresh photo!

    Ok test and analysis now complete. I can confirm without doubt that is the original Rob and not an undercover POTN agent out to convert the forum to gear paranoia and pictures of cats bottoms.

    ...It was the chippy actually. The aroma of 6 week old Trex and fried fishcakes wafts like the exhalation of a gossamer breathed angel over the ginnels and around the outdoor lavvies.
