English Scenes series A great photograph of the prominent rock on the third beach at Bovisand in Devon. The three beaches are a well-kept secret, really only known to the locals and a few well-informed tourists.
Of the three beaches, this one, the third, is the most secluded and anyone who has been here will recognise this particular rock, rising out of the sand as it does. Many, many children have happy memories of playing 'chase' around it or gingerly climbing it, avoiding scrapes (not always successfully) from the sharp barnacles!

Fine Art - Beyond The Pale Canvas Print

Pic of the day

Here's my chosen picture of the day for this blog and I hope you enjoy it. It's presented as a fine art wrapped canvas. Click to see it from different angles and customize with your size.


Dreamy Moments series The picture is of a fence at the side of sand dunes at Bantham Beach, Devon. The title has nothing to do with buckets :)
An old word for fence was based on the word "pale", meaning pointed wooden sticks (think "impale"). These fences marked the (defensive) boundary of a village or group of houses, so being "beyond the pale" meant you were beyond the safe area and you'd better watch out!


The image portrays the idea of taking a stand when all around you is threatening; facing up to the challenges that life throws at you, and all the time, protecting what's dear to you.
