[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Just back from a week away here in the island of Alderney - the most northerly of the Channel Islands and part of the British Isles.. (Actually not a part of the United Kingdom but for things like citizenship, money etc it's as good as in the UK)
I lived here for 2 years back in the 90's so it was a 'memory lane' trip.

These buildings are just to the west of 'Braye Beach'- one of many beautiful sandy beaches on the island. The weather was unusually good for the time of year...

Shot in RAW, cropped, tweaked contrast and converted to JPEG.

A well chosen perspective David.
The gorgeous blue sky and clouds really help set the scene.
Looks like a wonderful place to live.
Nicely done.

ciao david...superba composizione...bellissimi i dettagli...ottima composizione geometrica..bel pov..complimenti

Hi David,
Excellent crisp view of this nice part of (NOT)England :-) The panoramic crop works well. Great colour contrast of the orane roofs against the blue sky.

lovely light, great textures and i love the repeating patterns of the roofs.
well composed shot.


Hi David,

I'm not familiar with this place. I am sure it was interesting living on the island. I can only imagine the seafood! YUM.... Nice colorful buildings. I like the angle you have chosen with the repetitive roof lines. Nice warm colors on the rooftops.

thanks for sharing, lisa

Hi David!
Nice light and bright, very nice colors. Wonderful perspective. Original composition. Good capture.
