Skywatch #67


Boscombe, originally uploaded by duopastorale.

I took this photo on a recent holiday on the south coast of England, near Bournemouth. This shot was taken fairly early in the day; later on it was much more full of people. But 2 weeks after I left 340,000 people descended on these beaches! Look here!

One person and 2 chairs, I'm with you. I would have left to if 340.000 people descended there.

Beautiful shot!

I can't quite believe that this is England - it looks so tropical, complete with fluffy tropical clouds. Mind you, up here we've been looking enviously at the weather forecast for England all summer!

What a fabulous shot, Mike! And what a beautiful beach! I have trouble believing it is England also! It does look wonderfully tropical!

Have a great weekend!

Great photo...your perspective affirms the huge expanse of sky and ocean...beautiful!.... I followed the link...wow, wish I had taken that shot...
Anne said…
A perfect shot!!
Mike: I like the look of the secluded beach under the neat sky.
I'm sure it's much nicer without all those people. ;-) You were smart to get there early!

I have never seen Bournemouth like that - but then I avoid Bournemouth like the plague - obviously mistakenly. Great shot!!

Beautiful shot! Summer people descend on us and suddenly we can't turn across traffic on the road anymore. It ceases abruptly after our Labor Day when school picks up again.

This is a great shot. It is a postcard of the beach. The bright sand and the bright blue sky and the fluffy clouds. Perfect.

Gorgeous beach scene. The clouds look like they are almost touching down, so big.

Very fine scenery!
In England you have really powerful skies (I always remember the London and Exeter skies!).
Happy weekend!
that is beautiful, I would love to Holiday there!
Can´t belive it´´s England on your photo. The water looks like the mediterrenian sea. Well anyway it´s a lovely summer sky and a lovely beach. Thanks for visiting my place :-)

That's a gorgeous beach. I like these places when they are empty like this.

A beautiful view.

I would love to have seen your photo but a.) it took ages to find where to click on your post, and b.) when I got into Flicker, the photostill did not come up!

That's what I call a beach! Quite different from those pebbles at Deal and Aldeburgh!

Beautiful!!

Wonderful rich colors, and just two people is deliciously empty - Israeli beaches are much closer to the 340,000 on a summer day unfortunately.
