Christmas on the Channel

Walney Beach

When my dad gave me my first camera for Christmas 41 years ago today, he told me never to take pictures directly into the sun. So being an awkward sort of child I did anyway, and the result was, as often as not, very pleasing. So I’ve been doing it ever since.

Here’s the Walney Channel looking South-ish on a mild, bright and still Christmas Day, and very lovely it looks and feels too. I’m guessing from the number of unattended buoys that many boat-owners have taken their craft away for the duration.

Let me raise a glass of this rather nice Rioja to you and wish you all the compliments of the season

  1. Lovely photo and I entirely agree about ignoring the ‘don’t take pictures directly into the sun’ thing!

  2. but do heed the advice not to look through the viewfinder when you do!

  3. Your Dad of course was right, but being a rule breaker myself I applaud your flouting of such classic photography mantra rules. Gerald too of course if right to protect the eyes. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas.
