a perfect afternoon

yesterday ...
a beautiful afternoon on the beach at Marazion


in search of pebbles, seaweed and bits of beach string



nature throws the colours together perfectly ...


and the seaweed has amazing colours and textures ...








my camera seems to pick up colours and details that are hard to see by eye

I find nature's tones so relaxing and pretty inspiring





I found the beach string I was after ...
I need it for one of the projects in The Surface Treatment Workshop

you will see in a few weeks time ...


on valentine's day my hubby found a heart shaped pebble for me ...

yes ... it was a perfect afternoon

St. Michael's Mount from the beach at Marazion



I'm almost there with my stencil samples for Week 2 of The Surface Treatment Workshop
but I just want to work into them a little bit more so will share in the next post

thanks to you all for following along and for all kind comments
hope you enjoyed a little taste of the beach today

I love the colours in these photos - Mother Nature really is unbeatable isn't she?

Luscious colors! I could choose any one of them for palette inspiration. I am in the market for a new camera. Would you mind telling me what you use and are you using a special lens? Your photos are always so crisp and clean. Of course your eye for things is the most important thing. Thanks for always providing inspiration!

Finding a heart shaped pebble on Valentine's day - what could be more meaningful than that? Just these few photos provide a wealth of inspiration. Lucky you to have a beach to explore.

Just catching up on your beautiful blog. We walked this section of the SWCP a couple of weeks ago, it's such a lovely bay.
