On Shanklin Beach

A Sunday Picture is supposed to be photographs I’ve taken whilst walking, but I’m afraid I’m cheating a bit on this one. The reason I’m cheating is that this October I’m doing Sunset photographs and this is just one my favourite photographs of absolute all time.

It was taken on Shanklin Beach on the Isle of Wight in November 2006 (blimey, it doesn’t seem like it was five years ago!)

We stayed a couple of days and we did actually do some walking on that trip, and I did get some walking sunset photographs but none of them were as good as this one of Catherine stood on the beach. I just love it to absolute bits.

Still if you’re concerned about me breaking the rules, well tough. They’re mine to break. Also Catherine is actually wearing hiking boots in the photograph.
