Winter Sunset

This was the view from the end of #DunLaoghaire  pier #Dublin   #Ireland  a few hours ago.  Pretty amazing although not the best I've seen from this location.  You can just make out the small, crescent moon in the middle.

Beauty that pleases the eye is a frail, fleeting illusion. But that beauty capable of pleasing the heart can endure endlessly ~ Richelle E. Goodrich

I found myself down at an often visited location last Saturday, a place by the sea, just 20 minutes from my house. To say the weather was changeable would be an understatement, with a heavy storm front and squally showers interspersed with bright sunshine. I guess as a walker or swimmer it was not the best of conditions as the place was almost empty, but as a photographer it was magical. Even though I was running for cover as often as composing an image I loved watching the changing light play across the sea.

There are a number of these handrails around the pathway leading from Martello Tower to Dún Laoghaire and I noticed they all had a fresh lick of paint. The intensity of the Blue and White of the paintwork captured my attention, a counterpoint to the much subtler hues provided by nature in the background. I was struck by the thought, as I began to compose an image that even those these handrails are very old, covered in rust and been painted countless times, they still endure, they still serve a purpose to allow swimmers and walkers safely negotiate the elements presented by both the sea and weather. Maybe it is my age effecting me but I found comfort in that thought.

How about you?
