Standing at the Edge

I have finally decided what I wanted to do with the shot of these stilted beach huts in Essex, taken on the way for my spring trip to Orford Ness.

There is a much repeated shot of these huts with a square on composition, best taken at high tide. Unfortunately on the day I was there the tide was not quite high enough for that shot. Also, when I arrived there was already a queue of photographers lined up to capture that square on image. I wandered around a little and decided that I preferred the converging lines of clouds with the tide line. The pastels of the dawn light perfectly set off the colours of the huts themselves. I have therefore decided to eliminate the distractions on the water in the background and clean up the beach in the foreground to focus just on the diagonal lines. I hope you like it this way too.

Stilted beach huts on the Blackwater Estuary belong to the Osea Leisure Park near Malden in Essex.
