As part of Creative Courageous Year, we're being encouraged to really notice the seasonal colour around us. On today's dog walk I took so many pictures, but have yet to sort through them so I thought I would focus on these two beachy shots for today.
January can often feel like such a bleak time of year in terms of colour, especially when December is so rich and vibrant, but if there's one place I can appreciate and celebrate the bleakness it's at the beach. The simplicity of the sky, sand and sea combined with the winter light is the perfect canvas for showing off all those lovely 'bleak' non-colours at their best. You can see virtually every shade of grey imaginable at the beach on a winter's day. It's kind of cleansing in a way, like a visual detox for my colour hungry mind!
