|On Margate Sands

Margate has the most enormous, dazzling skies. I'm looking forward to being there at sunset.
Thanks. That was the idea....
It's amazing. I'm so used to the swarms of people on the sands from the paintings and photographs, it's huge without them.
People just don't spent their holidays lying on British beaches any more.
Wow - it's hard to believe that's a photograph.
It spent a long time in the editing suite...
Holy cow, that's ravishing. I see what you mean about the light. That cloudscape, those subtle, shining highlights -- wonderful!
Well, that looks like a painting.
Or a hand-tinted postcard.
I did quite a lot of tinkering in the editing suite- the contemporary equivalent of hand-tinting.
Weren't the skies just gorgeous yesterday hereabouts?
We sat in our garden with a pot of tea watching it all unfold.
I took a few pics also, but no time to post them just yet.
No accident that this is Turner's county.
Thanks. Largely achieved in the editing suite.
